90min journalist Chris Smith has revealed that Everton have ‘received bids’ for both Salomon Rondon and Allan.
The Lowdown: Surplus to requirements
Rondon and Allan are surplus to requirements at Goodison Park, with the former only making four appearances over all competitions so far this season, while the latter has not even featured (Transfermarkt).
The Merseyside club have also signed Neal Maupay, Amadou Onana and Idrissa Gueye in their positions over the summer, pushing them further down the pecking order.
The Latest: Bids received
Taking to Twitter, Smith has revealed that Frank Lampard’s side have ‘received bids’ for Rondon and Allan from Qatar, although their transfer window is now shut, but there is still ‘interest’ from the UAE in taking them:
“Multiple sources confirm Everton received bids from Qatar for Allan & Salomon Rondon recently. Their transfer window is now shut but interest in UAE remains, window there open until Oct 4. As reported in May, EFC happy to let both go.”
The Verdict: Get rid
It is clear that both players will not be getting much game time with the new arrivals, and so the Toffees should be looking to get rid of them off of the wage bill.
They would save over £90,000-per-week in wages by letting them go, which could then be used to potentially reinvest in the January transfer window.
Nonetheless, with a squad of 28 already, the Blues could do with cutting that down, and the fact that the UAE window is still open gives them a good opportunity to do that, in case they want to make any more signings in January.
