Super Eagles’ striker, Henry Onyekuru has played down suggestions linking him to a move to German Bundesliga club Borussia Monchengladbach, saying he just wants to focus on a good summer and return to Everton, AOIFootball.com reports.
The attacker, who was overlooked by Super Eagles’ manager, Gernot Rohr in his 30-man provisional World Cup squad despite returning from injury, told AOIFootball.com exclusively that he will carefully look at his options before deciding on the club to join next season.
“I saw the news that I was going to Germany; well, for now, those are just speculations because Everton had hoped that I would go to the World Cup so I can secure a work permit to play in the league next season. But as it stands now, I will look for another club to join on loan.
“There are a lot of offers for me in the Bundesliga, Premier League, and LaLiga but I want to wait till after the World Cup before deciding. I will not return to Anderlecht again,” Onyekuru added.
The former Eupen striker further added that he will be throwing all his weight behind the Super Eagles as he prays the team will surprise the world in Russia.
Onyekuru scored 10 goals for Anderlecht before his injury in December. Despite returning to full fitness over five weeks ago, the former league champions failed to feature the player owing to recently strained relationship.
