There are going to be many big names linked with many big clubs this summer fueled by the pandemonium of the World Cup. But, one name you may not of heard of – and justifiably so – is Bob Schepers who has been linked with several big clubs in the last few months.
Manchester United, Everton, and Ajax all rumoured to be interested in acquiring the services of the youngster who is currently employed at Dutch side SC Cambuur.
The 18-year-old winger has only played a handful of games during his senior career but, nevertheless, he made enough of a mark to earn a draft into the Netherlands U-17 squad last year.
With this honour, the youngster participated in the 2009 U-17 European Championship. The Dutch side made good progress into the knockout stages before being narrowly beaten in the final by national rivals Germany, 2-1 after extra time.
Unfortunately, that Dutch side wasn’t so successful at the World Cup tournament later that year when Schepers again featured. At that tournament in Nigeria, the Netherlands were eliminated during the group stages following losses to Iran and Colombia.
Schepers’ performances still managed to catch the eye though despite the player having not yet scored in his senior career, and it is reported that numerous Premier League and Eredivisie clubs are planning on making a move for the midfielder.
Alex Pama, SC Cambuur’s director has confirmed that, although no offer has been formally submitted, Everton are the first team to have made contact with the club about a possible transfer; an inquiry to which Pama has intimated that the club would allow the Schepers to depart for a decent transfer fee.
The Toffee’s have also reportedly inquired into the winger’s possible availability for a pre-season trial.
