The Everton Fans in the Transfer Tavern are rubbing their eyes in disbelief near the Tavern TV as reports are flooding in from Italy linking them with Ivan Perisic.
Goal.com have reported that while no official offers have been made for the Inter Milan man, Everton are certainly keen on the player. Everton tried to sign Perisic last season, while the winger was at Wolfsburg, and they even had a bid accepted. However, the Croatian chose Italy over England and signed for Inter Milan.
However, with Inter Milan’s champions league dreams come crashing down this season, the winger may be tempted to move to other clubs.
Possibly the biggest stumbling block in Martinez’s pursuit of Perisic will be the transfer fee. Perisic is seen as a valuable player for Inter and Goal reports that it would take around €30 million to take the Croatian to Everton.
with Everton’s new rich investor, the money may not be that much of a problem. Also with the possibility of Lukaku looking at bigger clubs in Europe, it may be sooner rather than later that a bid is made for the Inter Milan Man.
Everton fans…. Would you like to see Perisic at your club? Or would the money be better spent elsewhere?
