Everton journalist Chris Smith has revealed some transfer news that he has now been ‘told’ on Tino Anjorin.
The Lowdown: Midfielder wanted
The Toffees have only brought in James Tarkowski of note so far this summer, and have of course sold Richarlison to Tottenham Hotspur, so some supporters may be worried that their lack of transfer business will result in them fighting a relegation battle again.
The Latest: Anjorin interest
Taking to Twitter in sharing a corresponding article for 90min, Smith has revealed that Everton are now ‘considering an offer’ to sign Anjorin, and a move would be ‘far more likely’ if they fail in their bid to land Gibbs-White.
He tweeted: “I’m told #Everton are considering an offer for #Chelsea youngster Tino Anjorin.
“EFC are pushing for a permanent transfer but CFC would prefer a loan. Anjorin is happy to make the move.
“Understand this is far more likely if EFC fail with Gibbs-White.”
The Verdict: Cheaper alternative
With Wolves wanting more than £20m for Gibbs-White, and Lille’s president Olivier Letang valuing Onana at £33.8m, Anjorin could be seen as a cheaper alternative, given that he is valued at only £2.7m by Transfermarkt.
He was sent out on loan to both Lokomotiv Moscow and Huddersfield Town last term, where he gained vital experience of playing senior men’s football on a more regular basis, playing in the Europa League for the Russian club before helping the latter reach the Championship play-off final (Transfermarkt).
Even getting Anjorin in on loan would represent smart business from the Toffees.
