Everton: Toffees keen on Joao Palhinha transfer - Everton Transfer Rumours

Everton are reportedly among some of Europe’s top clubs keen on signing Joao Palhinha in the summer transfer window.

The Lowdown: Midfielders needed?

Given that both Gylfi Sigurdsson and James Rodriguez have recently been linked with moves away from Goodison Park, the Merseyside club may need to invest in more midfield players ahead of the new 2021/22 season.

Only the biggest Everton fan will get 100% on this 2020/21 season quiz! First up, who made the most appearances?

They have been strongly linked with a move for Matheus Nunes, but may assess other options the further into the window that they go.

The Latest: Palhinha eyed

As per Record (via Sport Witness), the Toffees are keen on signing Palhinha, although they face competition from Tottenham Hotspur, Atletico Madrid and Sevilla for his signature.

However, the news outlet claims that while the Blues are interested, they have ‘other priorities’, namely his teammate at Sporting – Nunes.

They also cite that Palhinha is currently away with Portugal at Euro 2020, and claim that he was one of their ‘best performers’ when he came on in the 2-2 draw with France in the group stages.

The Verdict: Sign

If EFC were to lose a few midfielders, and were not able to sign Nunes, then Palhinha would certainly be a good player to bring in and help bolster the squad.

He was such a key player in Sporting’s recent domestic title win, winning a tremendous 9.1 duels a game, while also averaging a whopping 3.3 tackles, 1.5 interceptions and 1.2 clearances per match (Sofascore).

Should Everton sign Palhinha?

No

At just 25 years of age as well, Palhinha still has potential to improve further, and that could well be fulfilled at Everton.
