Everton: Toffees make Matheus Pereira approach -Everton News

Everton have reportedly made an approach to try and sign Al Hilal winger Matheus Pereira.

The Lowdown: West Brom spell

The 25-year-old will be a name familiar to Toffees supporters from his spell at West Brom, where he netted an impressive 20 goals and supplied a further 26 assists in 77 games across all competitions, including 17 goal contributions in the Premier League (Transfermarkt).

Hailed as an ‘unbelievable‘ player by podcaster Joe Wainman, and dubbed ‘really exciting‘ by former top-flight striker Emile Heskey, Pereira is now playing for Al Hilal in Saudi Arabia, where he has three goals and 15 assists in 34 matches (Transfermarkt).

The Latest: Everton approach

As per the print edition of The Daily Mirror (28 August, page 78, via Goodison News), Everton and Leicester City have both made an approach to sign Pereira.

The Brazilian could be made available in the last few days of the transfer window, and the player himself would like to return to England, with the Merseyside club making an official enquiry.

The Verdict: Smart signing

Given his previous pedigree in English football, Pereira would certainly be a smart signing by Frank Lampard’s team.

As The Liverpool Echo journalist Ell Bretland put it, the winger is ‘great to watch’, and he would certainly get Toffees fans off of their seats, while he also has the added asset of being a ‘set-piece specialist’.

Indeed, the 26-year-old is unfailing from the penalty spot, scoring every one that he has taken in his career, while also being adept at netting from direct free kicks.

Also, Pereira has already scored and assisted against Everton before, so they are fully aware of the qualities that he would bring to Goodison Park.
