It has been revealed that Everton showed interest in signing Manchester City’s Phil Foden on loan last December.
According to The Athletic reporter Sam Lee (relayed via @EvertonNewsFeed), the Blues registered their desire to bring the midfielder to Goodison Park last year.
Would Phil Foden fit in at Everton?
Foden has risen to stardom with this current Man City side, having played a part in their last two Premier League titles. The 20-year-old is starting to become a regular part of the first team under Pep Guardiola, particularly after making 37 senior appearances and bagging eight goals and nine assists this season (via Transfermarkt).
After climbing up the City academy ranks, Foden is now valued at £36million. With David Silva calling time on his decade at the Etihad, it could be the perfect time for the Stockport-born playmaker to cement a starting slot in Pep Guardiola’s lineup.
Loads of Everton fans are discussing the idea of having Foden on loan, with many agreeing it would be a good piece of business. One Blue think that ‘he would be good for us’ whilst another has urged Everton to ‘break the bank’ to sign him.
