Arsenal have been handed a massive blow in signing Nigerian international Henry Onyekuru from KAS Eupen.

Reports claim Everton have pulled off a significant transfer coup by signing Onyekuru who was leading goal scorer in the Belgian League with 22 goals in 38 games.

His impressive performance attracted the likes of Arsenal West Ham and Everton; he was so good that he won his first international caps at the end of the campaign for Nigeria.

Arsenal had been regarded as leading the chase for the 20-year-old but Everton have trumped them all by negotiating a deal with Eupen that will see Onyekuru spend a season on loan with Anderlecht before coming to the Premier League.

Everton feel another season spent with Anderlecht, who will be playing in the Champions League, will be significant for Onyekuru’s development and he will arrive at Goodison Park in 12 months a much more polished forward.

Reports from the Sun suggested he had medicals on Monday after agreeing personal terms with the club
