On April 3rd, we covered claims made by LaRoma24.it that Everton winger Bernard has been ‘proposed’ to AS Roma.
It wasn’t specified who had offered the 27-year-old to the Serie A side, although it felt likely to be agents.
Calciomercato have now come up with the latest update. The wideman played under the guidance of Paulo Fonseca when the two were at Shakhtar Donetsk.
Fonseca is now in charge of the Italian capital club and the website states Bernard has a ‘desire’ to work under his former manager and, above all, feature regularly in the starting XI.
It’s claimed the player is ‘having difficulty’ under Carlo Ancelotti and wants to change clubs.
With football suspended due to the Cornavirus crisis, an intermediary has ‘proposed’ the South American to Roma.
Bernard fits ‘perfectly’ on the left wing in Fonseca’s game plan and it’s reported he could leave Goodison Park for a fee of €18-20m in the next transfer window.
Roma’s idea is to replace Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who is currently on loan from Arsenal, with Bernard. The Everton man’s ‘profile is taken into consideration even if no answer has been given yet’.
