FC Nordsjaelland are building a reputation for bringing impressive talents through their youth system, and Danish newspaper BT highlight the latest one on Tuesday.
Marcus Ingvartsen is receiving attention from a number of clubs including Everton. There was speculation the 21 year old striker could leave during the last summer transfer window, but player and club resisted.
Then followed a contract renewal, however, BT say that hasn’t ruled out a move happening in the near future. The Danish newspaper quote Ingvartsen as saying about his renewal: “It was to get some calm. But it does not change my long-term plans. FC Nordsjaelland and I agree that I have to leave at some point. Maybe this summer. And if I continue to play well, there will still be interest.”
Ronald Koeman will know a lot about scouting the Danish market, having been so involved with Ajax. The Dutch club have had a good record of bringing through talents from Denmark, and Koeman can use the same path for Everton.
FC Nordsjaelland are a good club for Everton to watch. In the summer they sold Emre Mor to Borussia Dortmund and previously brought Jores Okore through their system. Whilst the latter had a torrid time since leaving, there’s been injury issues hampering him.
The Danish club got 90m Danish Krone for Mor, which is around £10m, and they’d be hoping for similar with Ingvartsen. That’s not a huge sum for Everton and they could perhaps talk the price down a little.
