Inter Milan midfielder Matias Vecino has turned down an offer from Everton this month as he wants a club in Europe if he is to leave the Italian club.

That’s according to Gazzetta Dello Sport, who say Vecino has turned down several offers presented to him this month.

The midfielder has 15 appearances in all competitions for Inter Milan this season but has played a substitute’s role at best, with just one start in the league to his name so far.

That means he is on the list of players who could leave before the end of this month, with Inter always looking to do a deal given the financial situation at the club.

Everton have long been linked with a move, having first been named as suitors during Carlo Ancelotti’s reign and regularly named as an option since then.

The links returned this month when it was made clear manager Rafa Benitez was keen to add a central midfielder to his squad.

Benitez has now gone, but it seems he wouldn’t have got his man anyway as Vecino had said no to the offers on the table.

Gazzetta explain that if Vecino ‘has to move’, he wants to do so for a club that ‘aims at Europe’; otherwise, he feels he is best suited to stay in Milan and be ‘patient’.

It is because of that he has said no to ‘several teams’ that ‘knocked on’ Inter’s door this month, such as Genoa and Everton.

That should put an end to any links to Goodison Park for now, and potentially the future, with the turmoil on the blue half of Merseyside meaning they’re unlikely to call again and Vecino not interested anyway.
