Everton: Blues still interested in Rodrigo Becao signing

Everton: Blues still interested in Rodrigo Becao signing -Everton News

Everton are still interested in signing Udinese centre-back Rodrigo Becao after monitoring him in the summer, according to a new transfer update.

The Lowdown: Summer interest in Becao

The 26-year-old is impressing greatly for the Serie A side, starting nine league matches this season and winning an average of 2.1 aerial duels per game.

Becao was linked with a move to Everton during the summer transfer window but ended up staying at Udinese, with James Tarkowski and Conor Coady brought in instead.

It looks as though their interest hasn’t gone away, however, following a fresh claim.

The Latest: Everton still keen on move

According to Gazzetta dello Sport (via Sport Witness), ‘Everton’s courtship had been the most insistent’ during the summer when it came to potentially signing Becao.

It is also stated that his ‘admirers have increased in Italy and abroad’, given the level of performances so far in 2022/23, with an exit from Udinese looking on the cards.

The Verdict: Strong squad option

Becao could be a great signing by Everton considering he is 26 years of age and likely to be coming into the most productive and consistent years of his career.

He was once described as ‘absolutely incredible’ by Russian football expert David Sansun, during his time with CSKA Moscow, which further highlights his quality.

Becao’s current deal expires in 2024, meaning Udinese could be willing to sell him at the end of this season if they intend to cash in – and we feel the Toffees would be foolish not to at least try snapping him up.

Tarkowski and Coady both turn 30 in the coming months, so they can’t be relied upon forever, and the Brazilian could be the long-term hero at the heart of Everton’s defence.
