Amokachi - a keen observer of Anichebe's performances for the national team - believes the 23-year-old is ready to recapture his early promise.
Amokachi told evertonfc.com: "Victor has been playing well for Nigeria and that has been good for his confidence. Hopefully he can bring that form back to Everton with him.
"In Nigeria he is seen as a player with a lot of potential. He has done well for the national team and is viewed as a player who can be a star of the future.
"The Nigerian fans like him a lot as they always like players who give you 100 per cent. Victor always does that. Even when things aren't going well for him he tries his best."
