Everton are ‘insisting’ on signing the Benfica winger Andre Carrillo this summer, as reported by Portuguese newspaper Record today.

According to the story, the Toffees are willing to make an approach to know the conditions of a possible deal with the Eagles.

Record claims that there have been no formal contacts between the clubs yet, and that’s why we wonder why they included the word ‘insist’ in the headline.

The outlet makes it clear that Carrillo has been a request from Marco Silva, who has previously worked with the winger at Sporting and Watford. The Toffees would believe that the good relationship between player and manager would help in the negotiations.

It’s claimed that this time, Benfica are more interested in letting Carrillo go for good, so it’s unlikely they would accept a loan offer.

Although Record doesn’t say how much the Eagles are demanding for the Peruvian international, it’s likely that they will ask for at least €20m, especially because of his good performances at the World Cup.
