Scored 4 goals in 8 games according to UEFA. com.

{Ed007's Note - All in Onyekuru has managed to score 5 goals in 12 games for Anderlecht. He was pretty average against Celtic in the CL the other week and looked like he's miles off being ready for the EPL.
I don't see how he would qualify for a work permit so soon after being turned down either but I'm no expert on that stuff.}

Think if he is to come back in January they are looking at an exceptional talent thing they do. Man city did it with a couple of players and surprisingly we did with Funes mori.

{Ed007's Note - But what's changed in 6 months, they could have used the exceptional talent thing in the summer? I know it's easier to use it to get players to Scotland than England, we done it with Wanyama and a couple of recent signings and when Onyekuru turned us down for Everton Ed002 said he would need to go out on loan from an English team but would have qualified to play for Celtic.
I better be right there or Ed002 will be giving me a spanked bum!}

Cheers lads.

ed007, I don't think the club had any urgency to get him in 6 months ago as they courted Giroud and brought in Sandro. They probably believed keeping him at Anderlecht for a season would be good for both parties. Now it is a case of needing another outlet up front as we aren't really scoring too many and the lad is hitting the net in Belgium. I suppose it's worth a go of using the exceptional talent route just to give us some extra fire power. Question is, if we successfully bring him to Goodison in January, will the club still be trying to buy another forward?

{Ed007's Note - What I'm asking is if he wouldn't have got a work permit under the exceptional talent rules in the summer - any English team signing him would have had to loan him out to a European side - so what's changed that he would qualify for one in January only 6 months later?
I'm not questioning Everton's needs in the or anything like that mate, I'm questioning if the story in the Echo is true?}

sorry ed, should have said maybe they didn't go down the exceptional talent when they bought him, for the reasons I mentioned. Wouldn't be in the least bit surprised if it wasn't true! Cheers for the reply.

{Ed007's Note - No worries mate.}
