Everton: Toffees start watching Beto ahead of January

Everton: Toffees start watching Beto ahead of January -Everton News

Everton have reportedly started to watch Udinese striker Beto ahead of the January transfer window.

The Lowdown: Good start

Beto is enjoying a good start to the season, with four goals scored in his opening seven games in the Serie A, helping Udinese win five in a row in the league (Transfermarkt).

His impressive performances may now alert clubs with higher aspirations and deeper pockets, with the January window coming up after the FIFA World Cup ends in Qatar.

The Latest: Everton interest

As per Gazzetta dello Sport (via Sport Witness), scouts from Goodison Park have started to watch Beto ahead of a potential move in January.

However, both Fiorentina and Napoli have also been looking at the six-foot-three striker after his ‘brilliant start to the season’, with the latter’s president, Aurelio de Laurentiis, ready to pay as much as €30m (£26.3m).

The Verdict: Depends on Calvert-Lewin

The need for the Merseyside club to sign another striker in January will depend on the fitness of Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

He is reportedly in line to return from injury against Southampton after the international break, while new signing Neal Maupay recently grabbed the winner in the 1-0 win at home to West Ham United in the Premier League in his place.

Even though he has impressed this term, potentially spending nearly £30m on Beto would thus be a big gamble, but it could become a requirement if Calvert-Lewin cannot get over his persistent fitness issues.
