Everton are reportedly eyeing up a potential move in the January transfer window for Eintracht Frankfurt attacking midfielder Daichi Kamada.
The Lowdown: Kamada’s contract
The 26-year-old is out of contract next summer, meaning that he could leave the Europa League holders as a free agent if no agreement is struck before then.
It also means that he can sign a pre-contract agreement with a foreign club in the January transfer window, or leave mid-season for a cut-price fee.
The Latest: Everton interest
As per Fussball Transfers, Everton have ‘knocked’ on Frankfurt’s door over a potential deal for Kamada, alongside both Villarreal and Benfica.
The Verdict: No-brainer
To try and get Kamada in a cut-price deal in January is surely a no-brainer for Everton.
Hailed as a ‘top player‘ by journalist Pete O’Rourke, he has an impressive 12 goals and three assists from midfield in all competitions so far this season, including three goals in the Champions League to help send Frankfurt through to the knockout stages (Transfermarkt).
Kamada currently has the best shot conversion rate (38.7%) in Europe’s top five leagues, even better than the likes of Erling Haaland and Neymar (Opta), which further emphasises his quality.
Therefore, the Toffees must look to get a deal done as soon as they can before his stock more than likely rises after the World Cup.
