On Monday, reports from Colombia emerged saying Everton are in the hunt for Boca Juniors left-back Frank Fabra.
The story from Futbolete claimed Everton followed the 27-year-old in the friendly he played for Colombia against France, and now he’s on the international scene, their interest has been peaked.
The Premier League side would have even told the player’s representatives about the wish to sign him before the World Cup, and now should deal with Boca Juniors about the transfer.
But this contact hasn’t been confirmed by the player’s agent, Mr. José Constanzo, who had a chat with Sport Witness on Monday.
The representative claimed he’s aware of these recent rumours, but denies having spoken with any of the Toffees’ officials.
“We know of a supposed interest from Everton, but we have not met with anybody of the club,” Constanzo told Sport Witness.
“Now we did travel, we were in London, Manchester and Liverpool, taking advantage that the Argentine team played there.”
But if the claims are true, and Everton do come for the player, it seems that the conditions are pretty favourable for the transfer to happen.
“Boca will always ask for what the clause says, and that is fifteen million dollars (£10.6m). But they told us that if a logical offer comes for what the player is worth, they are going to sell him,” said the representative. “I think he’ll end up playing in the Premier League. There are other teams looking for left-backs.”
“So let’s wait for what is the best in money and sportingly and we will decide. Frank wants to play in the Premier. But Napoli can be a possibility too.”
