Everton are one of the clubs interested in signing Bristol City forward Antoine Semenyo in the summer transfer window, according to a fresh update by reliable journalist Adrian Kajumba.
The Lowdown: Semenyo stars for Bristol City
The 22-year-old has been one of side’s best players in recent times, proving to be a regular supplier of end product in the final third.
It could be that the Ghanaian has outgrown City, with Premier League interest now emerging, including from Everton.
The Latest: Everton linked with move
According to Kajumba, writing for The Daily Mail, the Blues are eyeing up a summer move for Semenyo, with Crystal Palace and Bournemouth also battling to acquire his signature.
The Eagles are ‘prepared to pay £12million’, although City are likely to demand £15million.
The youngster’s current deal expires at the end of next season, which could force his club to sell this summer, rather than risk losing him for free in 2023.
The Verdict: Exciting attacking option
While some may turn their noses up at a move for Semenyo, due to him being a Championship player and never playing in the Premier League, someone like Ivan Toney is proof that players can make the step up to the top flight.
Semenyo could be an exciting young addition for Everton, adding more vibrancy to the attack and bringing versatility, such is his ability to thrive both out wide and centrally.
The City man is coming into the best years of his career and he could provide Frank Lampard with much-needed squad depth, given Richarlison’s exit, Anthony Gordon’s potential departure and Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s current injury.
