German publication Kicker has a story with a headline saying the Everton’s Davy Klaassen is Werder Bremen’s ‘preferred candidate’.

There has been no official confirmation from the Bundesliga outfit about their interest in the player.

Having moved to the Merseyside club from Ajax in 2017, the former Eredivisie man is ‘eager to leave’ Goodison Park this summer after a disappointing season in England.

Bremen manager Florian Kohfeldt skipped a training session on Tuesday to meet Klaassen, according to Kicker. It’s claimed he was trying to persuade the Everton player to join the club.

The German club’s Niklas Moisander played with Klaassen at Ajax. Bremen’s CEO Frank Baumann hadn’t asked him about Klaassen, but he believes his  former teammate would fit in well.

“I hope Davy comes in. He’s a very good player for in the No.8 position, who could fit in well with our system,” Moisander told Kicker.

Klaassen would be the ‘creative strategist’ that Kohfeldt would prefer to succeed Thomas Delaney, who joined Borussia Dortmund. The rumoured fee of €15m would be a ‘feat’ for Bremen.

Kicker claim Bremen’s main aim is to convince the Dutch international to make a switch to the Bundesliga as he is leaning towards moving to Spain.

It should be seen as to where Klaassen will play next season, now that he is keen on leaving Everton.
