Everton linked with fresh move for Frank Onyeka

Everton have reportedly set their sights on securing the services of Nigerian midfielder Frank Onyeka in the winter transfer window. The Guardian has revealed that the Toffees have been closely monitoring the 26-year-old player, indicating a keen interest in adding him to their squad.

Known by the moniker “The Tank,” Onyeka has built a reputation as a formidable force on the field. Having played an impressive 65 games for Brentford, he has contributed three assists, showcasing his versatility and playmaking abilities. Despite being a midfielder, Onyeka’s impact extends beyond creating opportunities, earning him the affectionate nickname that reflects his robust style of play.

In the international arena, Onyeka has represented Nigeria in 14 matches, finding the back of the net on one occasion. His performances for the national team further underline his footballing prowess and have undoubtedly attracted the attention of clubs seeking a dynamic and accomplished midfielder.

While Onyeka recently committed to a four-year deal with Brentford earlier this month, recent developments suggest that he may be headed for a loan spell in January. This has opened the door for Everton to pursue a potential loan agreement. If the Toffees choose to secure Onyeka on a temporary basis, negotiations could materialize during the winter transfer window.

However, the path to acquiring Onyeka permanently is fraught with challenges, as Brentford is determined to make any potential sale a formidable task for Everton. The Premier League side is reportedly prepared to set a substantial asking price, hovering around the £20 million mark. This hefty fee reflects Brentford’s valuation of Onyeka’s talent and potential contributions to the team, making it clear that they are not inclined to facilitate an easy departure for the Nigerian midfielder.


As the winter transfer window unfolds, Everton will need to navigate the intricate negotiations with Brentford to secure Onyeka’s services. Whether it be a loan agreement or a permanent transfer, the Toffees will have to weigh the costs against the potential benefits of adding “The Tank” to their roster. The coming days will likely see intensified discussions and strategic maneuvering as Everton endeavors to strengthen its midfield with the acquisition of the talented Nigerian player.
