The future of Henry Onyekuru is something we’ve covered extensively this summer, with it seeming Everton are keen to sell.
The winger has spent the past two seasons out on loan from Goodison Park and impressed with Galatasaray in Turkey last season.
That caught the attention of Monaco, with the last report we covered saying they had agreed a €13m deal with Everton and the player was keen on joining them.
In fact, he already had agreed on a deal with the Ligue 1 side and was waiting for a work permit to complete the move.

That was two days ago, and Yahoo Sports journalist Manu Lonjon has now provided an update on the situation.
According to him, Onyekuru’s move to Monaco is still being held up by the need for a work permit, but the player ‘should’ receive that in the next 48/72 hours.
That suggests Monaco are confident of getting the deal completed at some point and with the French transfer window now closing until September 2nd, there is no rush or concern for them at this stage.
