Roma are hoping Everton will revive their interest in forward Cengiz Ünder as they look to make money from sales this summer.
That’s according to Corriere Dello Sport, who report that the Italian club are ‘working to make cash’ so that they can ‘enrich the treasury’ for their own incomings.
Thus they are focusing on players that are not part of Paulo Fonseca’s plans, and one of those on the chopping block is Ünder.
The Turkey international has endured another difficult season this year, managing just three goals in 22 games in all competitions and just over 1000 minutes of football.
Roma are now keen to sell him on and have already received a €25m plus €6m in bonuses offer from Napoli.
However, Roma chief Franco Baldini is ‘insisting’ on offering the player to a few clubs, and one of them is Everton.
They are on the hunt for a right-winger this summer, and Ünder has been linked on several occasions over the last few months.
Indeed, reports have always indicated that it was Carlo Ancelotti pushing the interest and the Italian pushing for Everton to sign him.
Thus Baldini is hoping that the Toffees or another English side will ‘relaunch’ their interest so that Roma can ‘get something more’ out of a potential sale.
Whether that is likely to happen isn’t mentioned, although Everton’s efforts seem to be more focused on a centre back and central midfielder at this point.
Corriere do say, though, that should a new ‘attractive offer’ not come from England in the new days then Roma may consider accepting Napoli’s bid instead, meaning Everton will have to move quickly if they are genuinely interested.
