On Tuesday, Argentine journalist César Luis Merlo stated Everton have made an approach for Real Betis’ Guido Rodríguez.

Later that day, Estadio Deportivo reported the La Liga side are waiting for the Toffees to make concrete moves.

Wednesday’s edition of Marca reports Everton ‘think about’ the 28-year-old. They also provide the transfer stances of Betis, Manuel Pellegrini and Rodríguez.

It’s suggested the Spanish club must get rid some of their players, such as William Carvalho, who has a year left on his contract.

Carvalho’s midfield partner Rodríguez has a market and that’s when Everton are tagged. The report adds Frank Lampard’s side have approached the Argentina international’s camp to find out about the options of a transfer.

The Merseyside club will find it difficult to carry out the deal because the player ‘prefers not to move’, and Pellegrini wants to retain him at Betis.

That doesn’t mean Rodríguez won’t be sold. Marca state ‘only an off-market offer’ would take him away from Betis this summer. The La Liga side ‘need to sell’ and the midfielder’s potential sale to Everton would help them in this regard.
