Everton: Toffees joined by Champions League club in Jeremie Boga race - Everton Transfer Rumours

Everton have reportedly been joined by a club in the UEFA Champions League to sign Jeremie Boga in the summer transfer window.

The Lowdown: Wingers wanted

Given the signing of Andros Townsend, and what looks to be the imminent capture of Demarai Gray (BBC Sport), it is clear that the Goodison Park faithful are looking to sign wingers.

Whether the Merseyside club would stop there is another question, but Rafa Benitez clearly wants to add more width to his team ahead of the new 2021/22 season.

The Latest: Boga race

As per The Daily Mail, Atalanta have joined the Toffees in what looks like to be a long race to secure the signature of Boga from Sassuolo, having already had a £15.5m bid rejected.

Leeds United and Crystal Palace have also shown interest in signing the Ivory Coast international, who only has two years left on his current deal.

The Verdict: Avoid

Given that Townsend has already signed, and that the Blues could well be following that up by signing Gray, it would not seem a wise idea to go after Boga as well.

Should Everton sign Boga?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The 24-year-old is a promising player, but only scored a mere four goals and made just two assists in 28 games in total over all competitions in the last campaign (Transfermarkt), which are not really impressive numbers for an attacker in a side known for their fast, expansive football.

Nonetheless, EFC should now be using their transfer budget to invest in more important areas of the squad, such as another striker to lighten the goalscoring load on Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
