On September 4th, both El Mercantil Valenciano and Super Deporte reported that Everton have emerged as one of the suitors for Jasper Cillessen.
It was also explained the Toffees need to offload Jordan Pickford, if they are to sign the Valencia goalkeeper.
Aston Villa have become the new suitor for the Netherlands international, according to Sport.
The La Liga side want to offload the 31-year-old for both sporting and economic reasons, and replace him with Fiorentina’s Germán Pezzella.
The Italians are asking €15m and are not ready to offer any discount to sanction Pezzella’s sale.
Javi Gracia’s side are trying to find a solution for the Dutchman in the market, but ‘the club can’t find a way out for him’.
When discussing the options, Sport state a move to Ajax can only be considered if André Onana leaves the Amsterdam based club.
Dean Smith’s side and the Merseyside club are mentioned, and the report states ‘Everton and Aston Villa have been the last to show interest’ in the former Barcelona keeper.
That’s about the only information regarding the two English clubs, as Valencia continue to wait to find a new club for Cillessen in the last month of the transfer window.
