FIORENTINA have joined the race for Everton starlet Henry Onyekuru.
The 20-year-old only joined the Toffees from Eupen last summer in a £7million move.
However, he was immediately sent out on loan to Anderlecht and has fired seven goals in 14 appearances for the club so far.
As SunSport reported earlier this week, both Manchester United and Barcelona have begun scouting the Nigerian.
However, Calciomercato claim that the Serie A side are now also interested in the star.
Fiorentina have joined fellow Italian side Juventus in the hunt for the youngster.
There had been talk of the Toffees recalling him as they looked to turn around their fortunes in front of goal.
The forward sparked rumours that he could be set for a comeback after posting a picture on his Instagram account tagging himself in Liverpool city centre last month.
When asked about the picture, he told Belgian newspaper La Libre: “Yes, that’s right and I’m waiting for something. That’s all I can say.
“I hope to be able to play there in January.
“Everton is happy with my start to the season but we are not in January and all my concentration is in Anderlecht.”
Onyekuru recently made his Nigeria debut, during a 1-1 draw in the World Cup qualifier with Algeria, and he is a contender to make the squad for Russia.
