Everton fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are happy to hear in talkSPORT that Roberto Martinez is enquiring about the availability of Fiorentina winger Josip Ilicic who has been a key player for the Viola this season.
Martinez’s side has been criticised this season for a lack of energy on the ball and a lack of purpose when going forward.
And Evertonians in the tavern hope that if they can land the tricky Slovenian international winger, he will bring a new dimension to their side.
The 26-year-old has been on form in Italy this season and Martinez has been impressed by the reports which have been compiled by the scouts who have monitored him this season.
Ilicic who has been in Serie A since 2010 is also picking up interest from Torino who have been long-term admirers whilst Lazio and Sampdoria are also keen on him.
So the Toffees will have to prepare a lucrative deal as it will be tough to lure a player to England who is so settled in Italy.
Everton fans. Are you confident of landing the Slovenian international winger or do you think he will stay in Serie A? Let us know your thoughts below.
