Premier League side Everton are said to have proposed Henry Onyekuru to Besiktas and Istanbul club is set to make a decision regarding the transfer according to reports in Turkey. 

Turkish newspaper Aksam are reporting that the Toffees have offered Besiktas the Nigeria international ahead of paying five million euros for the last installment of Cenk Tosun, who arrived at Goodison Park in January 2018.

However if the English club can reach an agreement with their Turkish counterparts, Onyekuru will end his association with Galatasaray at the end of the 2018/19 campaign before he is loaned to Besiktas for two years.

Besiktas are hoping to conclude talks after the end of election for a new club president later this month.

Onyekuru is on the radar of several top clubs in Europe because he has not been issued a British work permit, and the likes of Bayern Munich, Valencia, Sevilla, and Monaco have recently scouted him. 

The 21-year-old has played 40 games for Galatasaray in all competitions, scoring 15 goals and setting up four others.
