Everton still in with a chance of signing Serie A winger


Everton are still in with a shout of European football.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side take on Tottenham Hotspur on Monday evening and a victory will see them overtake Jose Mourinho’s men in the table.

They are currently 11th in the Premier League, one point behind Spurs, and can move into ninth with a victory, taking their tally to 47 points from 33 games.

They would be just five points off Wolves if they were victorious and eight behind fifth-placed Manchester United.

It has been an impressive season under manager Carlo Ancelotti, who has lost just three times in the Premier League as Toffees boss.

All of those defeats have come against typical top-six sides and the Toffees are now looking at how they can strengthen their squad for the 2020/21 season.

Sport Witness carries a report from Corriere dello Sport which claims that Cengiz Under remains a possible acquisition.

Roma are reportedly keen on Everton making a move for the forward, as they look to receive the biggest possible fee for the forward.


Napoli are said to have offered €25 million (£22.6m) up front, along with €6m (£5.4m) in bonuses.

Roma want a higher fee, though, and are hopeful of receiving €35m (£31.6m).

As a result, technical director Franco Baldini is stalling over the bid from their fellow Serie A club, giving Everton the opportunity of rivalling their offer.

GIVEMESPORT’S Harry Sherlock says…

Under has never quite lived up to his true potential.

He has never scored more than seven goals in a single season, while he has registered a maximum of seven assists as well.

In Serie A this season, he averages 1.5 shots per game, 1.4 key passes, and 1.8 dribbles, per WhoScored.

That is not exactly a brilliant return and at a fee of over £30m, he would not hugely improve the Goodison Park squad.

This deal just doesn’t really make sense.
