Journalist Larry Henry Jr has revealed that Everton are among a number of clubs who are now ‘waiting’ to sign Cameron Carter-Vickers this summer.
The Lowdown: Great season
The 24-year-old has had a great season on loan at Celtic from Tottenham Hotspur, with Hoops legend John Hartson even going as far as to claim that he has been “outstanding” for the Glasgow giants.
The United States international was a mainstay in the side which reclaimed the Scottish Premiership title from their fierce rivals Rangers, and he has earned himself a lucrative move once the transfer window opens.
The Latest: Everton ‘waiting’ to sign Carter-Vickers
As per Henry Jr on Twitter, Everton are now ‘waiting’ to sign Carter-Vickers, in case a permanent move to Parkhead from Spurs falls through.
He outlined: “Cameron Carter-Vickers has indeed agreed personal teams with Celtic, but no official agreement yet between #SPFL winners and Tottenham, a source close to the player confirmed. Bournemouth, Newcastle, Everton, Fulham waiting in the wings.”
Should Everton sign Carter-Vickers?
The Verdict: Sign him
Valued at £2.7m by Transfermarkt, Carter-Vickers could be a bargain signing for the Merseyside club, especially given question marks over Financial Fair Play (FFP) which may see them have a restricted budget once more this summer.
The 6 foot 1 colossus is still only 24 years of age, so he has plenty of room to develop into an even better centre-back over time, which should ensure that the Toffees get their money’s worth from signing him.
Nonetheless, there appears to be a lot of competition for his signature, so this is a deal that Frank Lampard and co will probably need to get done quickly.
