Everton have ‘reignited their interest’ in Southampton forward Kamaldeen Sulemana after missing out on him in the January transfer window.

That’s according to Sports World Ghana, who say the Saints are willing to let the player join Everton this summer, but only on a loan deal.

They explain that Everton are once again showing an interest in the Ghanaian winger after missing out on him earlier this year, when he chose to go to St Mary’s over Goodison Park.

The Toffees remain keen to add to their forward line, particularly on the right wing, and that’s seen them again show an interest in Sulemana.

Fortunately, they’ve found Southampton open to letting him go, although strangely they would only be willing to see the youngster only depart on loan for the time being.

The idea is to sanction a season-long loan deal, although an option to turn it into a permanent move next summer is ‘being negotiated’. Whether that’s Everton looking to include it in the deal or Southampton being open to it isn’t clear.

It’s more than likely the latter given Southampton are only willing to sanction a loan deal at this point, which would suggest they don’t want to lose Sulemana permanently.

Perhaps the idea is to put him in the Premier League for a year, hopefully secure promotion themselves this season and then have him ready made for that return themselves.

Either way, Everton are showing interest and talks are underway according to the website, with a loan deal on the table and on the face of it something that might suit everyone.
