Turkish giants Galatasaray have finally submitted a bid for Nigerian striker Henry Onyekuru.

According to daily newspaper, Hürriyet, the club have allocated a budget of €2.5 million for the permanent signing of the Super Eagles winger in the current transfer window.

The club’s manager Fatih Terim has insisted that the club should make a move for the Monaco-owned player who has expressed his desire to stay at the club.

He spent the second half of last season on loan at The Lions and the deal came with an option to buy set at €4.35 million, which expired on the 11th of June, 2021.

Galatasaray are looking to test Monaco’s resolve with a first offer of €2.5 million, which is €1.85m less than their asking price for the forward.

Onyekuru has adapted to life in Turkey and would rather remain at the Istanbul giants rather than move elsewhere for the 2021/22 campaign.

The 24-year-old has directly contributed to 34 goals (22 goals, 12 assists) in 71 matches for Terim’s side who have successfully qualified for the 2021/21 Uefa Champions League.

His contract with Monaco expires at the end of the 2023/24 season. Monaco have not shown much interest in recalling the attacker from his loan which has given an indication that they are willing to let him go for the right price.
