As new rumors of potential newcomers to Merseyside continue to surface, we have taken a look at the latest gossip to see what they could mean for the Blues.
Gian Marco Ferrari, defender of the Serie A Sassuolo outfit.
According to reports in Italy, the Blues have expressed interest in signing the central defender at the reopening of the transfer window.
He has been claimed by Calciomercato, Ancelotti is considering a decision for the 28-year-old to strengthen his defensive options.
The report adds that Ferrari could be available for around £ 9 million, which would be significantly lower than the prices announced for some other players linked to a move to Goodison Park.
The defensive third could be an area that Ancelotti immerses in the transfer to strengthen when the window reopens.
L’Echo understands that Goodison Park transfer transactions should be dominated by loan and swap transactions.
The coronavirus pandemic has caused significant financial hardship for football clubs around the world.
While Ferrari may be a “cheaper” option, it may still prove to be too much of a financial expense for Everton at the moment.
Matias Vecino, Inter Milan midfielder.
It has been claimed by reports in Italy that the Blues’ interest in the midfielder is “not as intense,” but could still be an option in the transfer window.
According to Calciomercato, via Sport Witness, the Blues have slowed down their pursuit for a Serie A player a little.
The Nerazzurri are believed to want to recoup part of their 25 million euro investment in Vecino, which moved to San Siro from Fiorentia in 2017.
Everton FC essential news
It may not come as a surprise to Everton to cool off his interest in potential targets for the next transfer window.
The suspension of the coronavirus means that many clubs, including the Blues, can only conclude loan and exchange agreements in order to bring new faces.
Admittedly, fees of almost 25 million euros would be far too high for most Premier League clubs, including Everton.
Jean-Clair Todibo, Barcelona defender.
The young central defender has been regularly linked to a move to Goodison Park, and now a new report has emerged about the 20-year-old.
According to Mundo Deportivo, via Sport Witness, Todibo is on Ancelotti’s agenda before the transfer window.
The report adds that a “close relationship” between the two clubs based on previous agreements will be very useful to the Blues if they want to reach an agreement.
As previously noted, the coronavirus epidemic means that Everton, as well as many other clubs across Europe, will be struggling to pay significant transfer fees this summer.
The Toffees are only expected to participate in loan and trade deals this summer, so any move involving Todibo should fall into one of these two categories.
