Both Manchester United and Barcelona have been scouting on-loan Everton striker Henry Onyekuru who has scored 7 goals for Anderlecht this season.
The Nigerian striker signed for Everton from Belgian side Eupen in the summer, but was immediately sent back on loan to Belgium and Anderlecht, and has never played for the English team at any level.
Although there has been talk of him being recalled to Merseyside, with Everton desperately in need of firepower to reignite their stuttering attack, Onyekuru could be set for another move as both United and Barcelona had the player watched as Anderlecht beat Royal Excel Mouscron at the weekend, with Onyekuru scoring the winner in a 2 – 1 victory.
Onyekuru made his debut for Nigeria in a friendly win over Togo in June.
