Monaco have signed Nigeria worldwide Henry Onyekuru on a five-year-deal from Everton, the French club announced on Monday.

The Blues paid £7million to sign Onyekuru from Belgian side Eupen back in 2017 but he was unable to secure a work permit and as such, was sent on loan to Anderlecht.

The winger scored 14 league goals in Turkey last season and reportedly joins the Ligue 1 outfit for 17 million euros ($19 million).

The new move is providing a new opportunity for Onyekuru who has been tipped to be among the would be finishers for Super Eagles following the departure of Odion Ighalo from the Gernot Rohr tutored team.

Chelsea had more possession, more shots and indeed more shots on target. "If they are here it is because they deserve to be". We have to face it, take the responsibility and move forward.

In a release published on Sunday, AS Monaco announced the departure of Emenalo, who was appointed Director in 2017 immediately after the former Nigeria worldwide left Chelsea.

Ikpeba made 170 appearances for Monaco scoring 55 goals before moving over to Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund.

But the French club stated clearly that the 54-year-old was not sacked at the club, but left on mutual agreement.

He joined Monaco in November 2017 after being recommended for his eye for top talent, but his recruitment caused him to lose the confidence of his bosses.
