The January transfer window is around the corners, and one of Nigeria’s exciting attackers is back in the rumour mills
Greek media, as per Mynet, is claiming that Henry Onyekuru will leave Olympiacos in the January transfer season after failing to make much positive impact during his first six months at the club.
Onyekuru only moved to Olympiacos in August after the Greek champions secured his signing on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee believed to be in the region of four-and-a-half million euros. The Greek giants beat Fenerbahce, Galatasaray, and Besiktas to his signature in the summer.
But the 24-year-old forward has found it hard to settle down in Greece, and he is yet to produce his best form.
The Nigerian international has not registered a goal in nine league appearances and has just one assist in five Europa League games for the Red-Whites.
According to the reports, Onyekuru has his eyes set on returning to Galatasaray, where he has previously spent three different loan spells.
Aside from his remarkable breakthrough period at Eupen, Onyekuru has only been excellent at Galatasaray, with spells at Monaco, Anderlecht, and Olympiacos not as productive.
The Super Eagles star grabbed 22 goals and 12 assists in 71 matches with the yellow-reds, winning the Super Lig and Turkish Cup double in 2019.
However, Galatasaray are not interested in signing Onyekuru outright, with the Fatih Terim-tutored side preparing a loan deal until the end of the season.
