It’s easy to forget about Henry Onyekuru. The 20-year-old winger made a transfer to Merseyside from Eupen back in June, but was immediately loaned out to Anderlecht for the season. Because of that, it barely even feels like he is an Everton player. But he should be in blue and white next season and, by all accounts, he’s an awesome player that will slot right into the first team.

There is a lot to like and just as much to worry about with the forward. Onyekuru is recovering from a knee injury under the supervision of Everton’s medical team, but he’s young, which should help the healing process. But coming back from injury is never easy and set backs can happen. However, he was just given a big award in a country that seems to be in the midst of a football revolution. Be patient with Onyekuru. He could pay off some major dividends.
