At Galatasaray, the main idea of Henry Onyekuru is in the head of head coach Fahit Terim who considers the previous seasons he’d played alongside the Nigerian winger.
As per requirement from the coach, he needs fast attackers that will light up the attack. At least, it will improve the team’s overall ability to score goals week in week out.
Officially, Galatasaray has offered 5 million euros as a transfer fee for Henry Onyekuru who is currently not an asset at AS Monaco, since the head coach of the club Niko Kovac made it public after Onyekuru’s return from loan.
The details of the transfer discussed on Sporx indicates the club’s desire initially was to sign the Nigerian on loan, which was quickly rejected by the Principality club during a meeting between the two clubs in Monte Carlo.
Another reason behind the Yellow Red’s move to sign Onyekuru is his desire to move to the Turkish side amid troubling times in his career in France.
The manager of the side Fahit Terim convinced the management of Galatasaray to look at the idea of signing the 23-year old permanently.

The French club signed the attacker for 13.5 million euros, and as such, they requested 9.5 million euros. Which was further trimmed down to 7.5.
The plan, Gala wants to sign him on loan for an initial six months on a free which will be followed by a €5 million euros payment as a transfer fee.
The two sides are yet to come to terms with the recent offer made by the Turkish club.
