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.

“Everton is happy with my start to the season but we are not in January and all my concentration is in Anderlecht.”

Premier League sides Southampton and Stoke are also interested — as are Dutch giants Ajax and PSV Eindhoven.

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.
