Henry Onyekuru wants Galatasaray stay


Henry Onyekuru’s top priority is to remain at Galatasaray, according to reports.

The striker has been subject to a lot of transfer speculation after his season-long loan finished at the Turkish club.

Greek giants Olympiacos are one of the clubs who are showing serious interest in signing the 24-year-old. Galatasaray haven’t taken a decision on the player, who has an option to sign for them permanently after the end of his loan. He scored five Super Lig goals and assisted another four strikes in 14 appearances in the 2020/21 campaign.

Fatih Terim’s side finished in second place in the league with 84 points from 40 games. They have qualified for the 2021/22 Uefa Champions League.

The upcoming elections of the club’s board leadership will usher in a new management that will decide on new transfers and which players will remain at the Turk Telekom Stadium.

Onyekuru prefers to wait on the outcome of these elections to know his fate with the Cimbom before he listens to other offers including that of Olympiacos.

His parent club AS Monaco have received several offers from other clubs, but the player himself is prepared to wait on Galatasaray before he opens talks with them.

Monaco want at least 4,3 million Euros to consider releasing the player.

It has been a rollercoaster ride for the attacker who has had to go out on several loan spells after struggling to break into the Monaco first team.

After another impressive campaign at the Turkish side, the striker seems to have decided to stay where he is more appreciated and loved.

Galatasaray have several African stars in their ranks. Algerian midfielder Sofiane Feghouli, Egyptian striker Mostafa Mohamed and Congolese defender Christian Luyindana are amongst a host of African players contracted to the Istanbul club.
