Everton: Toffees fighting Spurs and many other Premier League clubs for Orbelin Pineda

Everton: Toffees fighting Spurs and many other Premier League clubs for Orbelin Pineda - Everton Transfer Rumours

Everton are fighting Spurs, as well as many other clubs from the Premier League, to sign Orbelin Pineda, according to 90min.

As per the news outlet, a host of scouts from the top flight are keeping an eye on the Cruz Azul star, who has expressed an interest in moving to play football in Europe.

Would Pineda be a good signing for Everton?

Yes

Yes

No

No

He actually rejected an earlier chance to move to Europe – to sign for Manchester City back in 2016 – but this could now be his chance to follow his interest up.

Pineda attracting Premier League interest

In addition to Tottenham Hotspur and the Goodison Park faithful, Arsenal, Wolves, Southampton, Newcastle United and West Ham United have all been tracking the progress of Pineda, along with Ajax, PSV Eindhoven, FC Porto and AS Monaco.

What year did Moyes first take charge at Everton?

However, in a blow to the chances of the Merseyside club in signing him, a move to the latter four teams is the most likely option for the player, whose current deal is set to expire in December of next year.

Pineda is a ‘talent’

Indeed, there is no doubting that Pineda is a ‘talent’, given that he has been playing men’s football since the 2014/15 term when he was just a teenager.

Since then, he has played in over 250 senior games for various teams and also has no fewer than 21 senior caps for Mexico all at the tender age of 24.

Pineda is ripping up his domestic league

Pineda is ripping up his domestic league and thus should really be playing at a higher level.

The winger won a rather impressive 4.5 of his duels a game in the Liga MX in 2020 and also averaged 1.5 key passes and 1.5 successful dribbles per match (Sofascore).

Nonetheless, if Carlo Ancelotti’s side want to sign him, then they will have to fend off a lot of competition for his services.
