Galatasaray are looking to make the loan deal of Nigerian forward Henry Onyekuru permanent.
Onyekuru rejoined the Turkish Super Lig champions during the January transfer window on loan from Ligue 1 side Monaco with his contract stipulating a no-purchase-option.
Despite the clause in the contract, popular Turkish website, Fanatik.com has revealed that the Yellow-Reds are already taking action to extend the contract of the Nigerian.
The report states that Galatasaray manager, Fatih Terim, has insisted that the management opened a communication channel with the player’s parent club to continue talks on either a loan extension or a permanent deal for the player.
Onyekuru has scored a goal and provided two assists in four appearances for the club, with his goal against Fenerbahce on Sunday ending a 21-year winless streak against their arch-rivals at the Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium.
The 22-year-old was instrumental in the club’s 2018/19 Turkish Lig triumph, scoring 14 goals in 31 league games, but joined Monaco in the summer for €15m after the Turkish club failed to meet Everton’s valuation of the Nigeria international.
