RSC Anderlecht of Belgium attacker, Henry Onyekuru is now the second most expensive player in Belgium, rated only behind his Anderlecht teammate, defensive midfielder, Leander Dendoncker, who is valued at 16.5m Euros.
The former KAS Eupen star’s transfer value has shot up from 8.5m Euros to 10m, despite him spending over three months out with injury and after less than a season on loan from English Premier League side, Everton.
The 20-year-old Onyekuru is eyeing a return to action this Sunday, after a long-term knee injury which cut short his promising start to the campaign, with nine goals in the early weeks of the top-flight Belgian league.
Two other Nigeria stars, Emmanuel Bonaventure Dennis and Samuel Kalu, are also among the top 10 most expensive stars in Belgium today.
Dennis of Club Brugge is now valued at 7.5 million Euros, while Kalu of KAA Gent now has a better price tag of 4 million Euros.
Incidentally, Onyekuru is now set to make his long-awaited comeback on Sunday when Anderlecht face Club Brugge in a Belgian championship playoff after playing for an hour in a youth game.
Onyekuru, who has not played for over five months after a serious knee injury, played without any problems for the Anderlecht youth team at Standard Liege on Monday night.
The 20-year-old forward played for an hour in a 2-2 draw and his chances of seeing action have been further brightened with the suspension of Kenny Seif, which should see Onyekuru return on Sunday against Club Brugge.
