Henry Onyekuru is open to playing in La Liga

​According to Henry Onyekuru's agent, the Nigeria international has been revealed that he is open to playing in La Liga in the upcoming 2019/20 season.

The Everton winger has been linked with Valencia as well as Andalusian clubs Real Betis and Sevilla but it is thought that Galatasaray, where he spent last season on loan, are in the driving seat for his signature.

With 14 goals and five assists in 31 league games, Onyekuru played a major role as Galatasaray won the Super Lig.

Since joining Everton in the summer of 2017 from Eupen, the Super Eagles star has been loaned out because he is not eligible for a work permit to play in the Premier League.

Speaking to Estadio Deportivo, Onyekuru's agent, William D’Avila said: ''Henry is open to everything, he would like to take the step to one of the big leagues''.

Everton paid eight million euros to sign Onyekuru from Eupen and it remains to be seen if he will be sold or loaned out again this summer. 

The 22-year-old is currently on international duty with the Super Eagles ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
