Everton: Toffees ‘interested’ in Luka Milivojevic

Everton: Toffees ‘interested’ in Luka Milivojevic -Everton News

Everton are reportedly interested in Crystal Palace midfielder Luka Milivojevic, according to Greek newspaper editor Gerasimos Manolidis.

The lowdown: Experienced head

A veteran of 397 senior club appearances across spells at RSC Anderlecht, Red Star Belgrade, FK Rad, Olympiacos and current employers Palace, Milivojevic boasts a wealth of experience, racking up 53 goals and 27 assists across his career.

The 31-year-old Serbian has amassed 177 outings in total for the South East London club, 165 of which have come in the Premier League, scoring 28 goals in that time including 22 from the penalty spot.

Despite his almost legendary status as club captain at Palace, it appears a summer departure is on the cards and Everton could be set to benefit…

The latest: Milivojevic will move, Toffees interested

Taking to Twitter, Manolidis, sports chief for popular newspaper Sportime, has claimed that the Toffees and newly-promoted Fulham are both ‘interested’ in bringing Milivojevic to Goodison Park and he ‘will leave’ SE25.

He stated: “There is no chance @CPFC Luka Milivojevic return to @olympiacosfc this summer. Most likely, he will leave #CPFC, but there are several teams that are interested in him. @FulhamFC and @Everton are among them. #FFC #EFC”

The verdict: Better options to be had

As the Blues plan for a new era under Frank Lampard having narrowly survived the drop in 2021/22, making moves for the likes of Milivojevic would have to be regarded as a sideways step given the Serbian’s profile.

Last season, the 39-cap ace – who was hailed as a ‘brilliant servant’ to the club by journalist Daniel Storey – made only 20 appearances for Palace across all competitions as they themselves attempt to freshen up their own ranks with Patrick Vieira at the helm.

Although Lampard and recruitment chief Kevin Thelwell need to find midfield reinforcements this summer to supplement regularly used trio Allan, Abdoulaye Doucoure and Andre Gomes, making a move for a man being phased out from their competition seems like a pointless venture.
