Everton remain keen on Inter Milan midfielder Matías Vecino and last night made an ‘important shot’ to try and secure his signature.

That’s according to Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla who, in an exclusive on his website, says the Blues have made another attempt to sign Vecino.

Pedulla reports that the Blues were interested in Vecino three weeks ago and made it known, but Inter Milan did not want to negotiate at the time.

Unperturbed, Everton have come back once again, and ‘new contacts’ between both clubs were established last night.

Inter Milan are open to a deal this time, although they will not sanction a loan deal with a purchase option and are instead looking to Everton to buy Vecino outright.

They want to ‘balance the numbers’ through a permanent sale, and it’s not made clear whether Everton would be open to such a deal.

However, Pedulla says there are now ‘margins and openings’ for the transfer to happen, although it may take until the final days of the transfer window for it to go through.
