Everton fans here in the Tavern are hoping the club can turn their current batch of flourishing youngsters into future stars, and securing the services of this man will contribute significantly.
Indeed, the Toffees may not have enjoyed the best of seasons in the Premier League. But, some of the next generation have surpassed expectations, with Kieran Dowell and Jonjoe Kenny being two of the latest stars to come out of Finch Farm.
And, Everton are now looking to build on their large pool of youth-system talent. As according to reports in the Mirror, the Toffees are talking to PSV about bringing their director of football Marcel Brands in to join the player recruitment set-up.
The 54-year-old has been the mastermind behind many brilliant recruits over the years, after producing a string of stars over in Eindhoven, and aided Louis Van Gaal’s shock triumph during his time at AZ Alkmaar. Now, having been with PSV since 2010, Everton are looking to snatch the Dutchman away from his home country in what could spell for huge success in the future of the club.
And, the list of previous players recruited and sold by Brands isn’t too shabby at all, with the likes of Memphis Depay, Georginio Wijnaldum and Kevin Strootman contributing towards the £200 million he’s made in revenue during his time in Holland.
Although they currently have a batch of English youngsters coming up through the youth-system, it’s understood that the 54-year-old will add a global dimension to Merseyside recruitment.
Although it may not be a transfer signing, the potential recruitment for the Toffees in the future could see them become one of the best sides in the Premier League if his past is anything to go off.
