Everton: Toffees fighting Tottenham for Rodrigo Becao

Everton: Toffees fighting Tottenham for Rodrigo Becao -Everton News

Everton are reportedly now fighting Tottenham Hotspur to sign Rodrigo Becao this summer.

The Lowdown: Another centre-back?

James Tarkowski is expected to join the Goodison Park outfit on a free transfer from Burnley, but they may not be done there in terms of bringing in central defenders.

The likes of Kim Min-jae and Chancel Mbemba have recently been linked with moves to Merseyside, as Frank Lampard is clearly looking to strengthen his defence further going into the new season.

The Latest: Becao interest

As per Tutto Udinese, as reported ‘in recent days’, the Toffees have now ‘come forward’ to sign Becao, as well as Spurs.

He has had an ‘excellent’ individual campaign with Udinese, and is valued by the Serie A side at between €15-20m (£12.8-17.1m).

The Verdict: Low risk

If the Blues can sign Becao for as little as £12.8m, then it would provide a relatively low-risk option as they look to strengthen elsewhere in the squad with limited financial wiggle room.

The six-foot-three colossus was a standout player for Udinese last term, ranking highly among his teammates in terms of aerial duels won and average tackles, interceptions, clearances, blocks and passes per game in the Serie A (WhoScored).

Nonetheless, at 26 years of age, the Brazilian is about to enter his prime, and so this would be a smart deal to do so long as the price is right.
