The 20-year-old striker has an agreement with the Belgian giants having spent 2017-18 there, on loan from Everton.
His loan spell, however, was badly disrupted by a serious knee injury, which likely cost him a place in Nigeria's World Cup squad.
Onyekuru needs to play in 75% or more of his country's internationals to qualify for a UK work permit and there are those in Nigeria who feel as though Anderlecht deliberately withheld him from the team in recent weeks to ensure that he would be overlooked.
Whether the player himself feels that way or he just wants a change of scenery, Het Laatste Nieuws in Belgium are reporting that Onyekuru will travel to Germany to discuss a fresh loan move with Moenchengladbach, pending agreement from Everton.

It's like buying a Porsche for your 2 year old son.

I understand about buying for the future. I think, however, that buying players we can use makes a lot more sense.

They wanted the player next season and even threw away his chance of a call up.
From what I have heard, Everton will put more terms into his loan spell in Germany and for me, the teams in Germany are a step up from the Belgium league.

Over to you Mr Brands.

Better than another season in a sub-standard league just to get a passport.
Germany is a country where many a young player has been trusted and thrived, so hopefully that will be the result, and in 2019-20 we will have a top top-class striker on our books.

Everton are looking to loan the player out again but surely worth taking this to the Home Office to review???
