Thomas Delaney and Everton is a love story that deserves a happy ending, considering all the efforts the Toffees have made over the past couple of seasons to sign the Denmark international.

However, there’s been a big Werder Bremen shaped obstacle between the two parties, but that could change very quickly in the summer if the player gets his way.

Speaking to the press, both the Bundesliga’s director of football and manager admitted they might struggle to keep the 26-year-old around for much longer, especially if he has a good World Cup.

In fact, they aren’t remotely surprised to hear their star midfielder explain Werder Bremen is just an ‘ideal transit station’ to the Premier League.

Florian Kohfeldt, the club’s manager, said, relayed by Kicker: “What Thomas says is perfectly legitimate and has no impact on the current season. He’s beyond all doubt in terms of attitude, passion and commitment on the pitch”.

Pitching in, Frank Baumann, their director of football, said: “Thomas wants to go to England someday, but when that will be isn’t said. Being a lifelong green and white doesn’t apply to all. We are not moving in a dream world”.

As a reminder, Everton were keen on the Dane when he was still at FC Copenhagen, but couldn’t get him as he’d already agreed to join Werder Bremen in January 2017, and the Germans weren’t interested at all in making a quick profit by selling him on straight away.

Fast forward to now, and Everton could very well get their midfielder in the summer.

Either that or he’ll end up somewhere else in England.
