Everton have beaten Premier League rivals Arsenal and West Ham to the signing of Nigerian forward Henry Onyekuru from KAS Eupen.

Onyekuru is expected to be loaned to Anderlecht for the next 12 months to continue his development in Belgium.

He's understood to have had a medical with Everton on Monday.

The 20-year-old scored 24 goals in 41 appearances in all competitions last season, and has a better goalscoring record than that of Romelu Lukaku.

Onyekuru was born in Nigeria but left for the Aspire Academy in Qatar in 2010, while in his early teens.

However, there has been a delay in completing the transfer because of his involvement with Spain's Under-21s at the European Championship.

Onyekluru, who has won one cap for the Super Eagles, will become Everton's third signing of the summer.

According to BBC Sport's Phil McNulty, the Nigeria worldwide is poised to join the Toffees in a deal worth around £7 million before moving to Anderlecht on loan for the 2017-18 campaign.

Everton will then set about securing the signatures of Gylfi Sigurdsson, who is Ronald Koeman's prime target, and Burnley defender Michael Keane.
