Onyekuru reveals his next destination if he leaves Olympiakos

The Nigerian striker has struggled to adapt to life in Greece, and he could be on the move next summer

Super Eagles striker Henry Onyekuru has revealed that the only club he would agree to join if he leaves Olympiakos is Galatasaray.

The Nigeria international has struggled to adapt to Greek football since his 4.5million euros move from Monaco to Olympiakos six months ago.

So far, the former Everton man has behaved like a fish out of the water, and most of his appearances have been as substitutes.

Onyekuru has been profligate in front of goal, securing just one goal and one assist in 21 games for the Legends.

Earlier on, Soccernet reported that Olympiakos were ready to let Onyekuru go if a suitable offer came. In January, Turkish giants Besiktas, Galatasaray, Fenerbahce and Basaksehir were all linked with a move for the 24-year-old forward to secure his services, but there was no deal.

However, according to Depar Sports, as per Milliyet, Onyekuru has revealed that he is only interested in moving to Galatasaray.

This assertion is not surprising, as the Nigerian star has played his best football at Galatasaray. The 24-year-old has had three loan stints at Istanbul, scoring 22 goals and assisting 12 in 71 appearances.

He has also won the Super Lig and the Turkish Cup with Galatasaray.
