Manchester United are closely monitoring Everton’s Henry Onyekuru who is currently on loan at Belgian side Anderlecht. Barcelona, Tottenham and Ajax are all also reported to be interested in the youngster.

A report from Italian sports outlet CalcioMercato has reported that the Red Devils are closely scouting the 20-year-old after being impressed by the Nigerian’s form since he was sent on loan to Anderlecht.

Onyekuru signed for Everton this summer but was immediately sent out on loan by manager at the time Ronald Koeman to gain experience and to maintain regular football.

The youngster has struck some outstanding form in Belgium scoring seven goals in just 14 matches. While United, Barca and Spurs are interested in the star’s recent form we wouldn’t be surprised to see the Toffee’s heads turned in recalling the youngster from loan after a dismal star to the season for the Merseyside club.

The Nigerian is six foot in stature and has all the components to make him a success in the Premier League.

While it is sure to make headlines that Europe’s elite clubs are interested in such a young talent it is perhaps more of a story that Everton allowed to youngster to walk out of Goodison Park at the end of the summer with their attacking quality within their squad considerably weak.
