Everton remain focused on signing Inter Milan midfielder Matias Vecino. The two clubs are reportedly negotiating the transfer and the player is ready to join the Toffees. Apparently, Inter Milan is said to value the player at around €20m but Everton want to pay €15m. It will be interesting to see if Everton agree to their fees and clauses for the midfielder as they are on a tight budget.
Everton is in dying need of adding to their midfield options and Vecino could prove to be a handy option for Carlo Ancelotti’s team. The midfielder is said to be needing a fresh start after falling out of favor at Inter Milan.
Vecino, is said to be excited as he views Ancelotti as a world-class manager that any player would be tempted to work with. If the deal goes down in his favor, Vecino will be looking to kick-start his career under the Italian Boss.
Everton have had a slow start to the season this far. Their performance have been rather poor and they will have to improve a lot in the remaining games if they plan on finishing at least top ten in the table.
New signings like Vecino will certainly give them a boost in that regard. The 28-year-old Uruguayan midfielder will create chances and composure to Everton’s midfield.
With less than a week remaining in the transfer window, Everton will have to push harder and make more efforts to secure the lad. Pedulla claims that Nerazzurri would rather sell him outright than a loan with an option to buy.
With Carlo Ancelotti still struggling with the side former boss Marco Silva put together, the new Boss is expected to make some changes. Ancelotti, took over just last month and Everton are yet to make any new additions since the takeover. Silva, was sacked after transfer flops and poor results.
With Andre Gomes set to be out for the season, the midfield is lacking or therein, with both Morgan Schneiderlin and Fabian Delph entering their 30s (no so skillful anymore) and young 21-year-old Tom Davies still struggling to find his feet.
The new Boss is faced with a difficult task as the Toffees have underperformed this season. Ancelotti faces a significant rebuilding job and will have to restructure the club from the ground up. His best bet is to bring in proven quality, with experience. This appears to be a top of his agenda as Vecino appears to fit the bill.
