Everton are dragged into the mix to sign AS Roma’s Jordan Veretout, if reports coming out of the Italian media are to believed.
The midfielder is not included in José Mourinho’s plans next season and is likely to leave the Serie A side this summer.
On Tuesday, Calciomercato came out with a short report stating the player’s future could be ‘far from Roma’.
A new possibility in England has opened up for the 29-year-old as Everton are ‘thinking about him’.
The website made it clear there wasn’t anything official from the Toffees, but the Italian club are ready to cut ties with the former Aston Villa man for €15m.
TuttoMercatoWeb have a report today discussing the Giallorossi’s midfield situation, which is when the Frenchman gets a mention as they state it is ‘no longer a mystery’ Roma have made him available in the market.
Veretout prefers to return to his country or stay in Serie A, where Marseille and Milan have taken steps to sign him, with the Ligue 1 side in a more concrete way than the Italian champions.
However, the gap between supply and demand is ‘still great’.
This can give an opportunity to Everton to join the chase as TMW explain Frank Lampard’s side ‘still have time’ to ‘enter negotiations’ to sign Veretout.
With Everton ‘thinking about’ the Frenchman, it remains to be seen whether they will take advantage of Marseille and Milan’s failure to find an agreement with Roma.
