Everton target doesn’t want transfer yet

EvertonEverton fans playing pool in The Transfer Tavern are discussing comments made by a rumoured transfer target for the club.

TuttoMercatoWeb is reporting that both Everton and Celtic are interested in signing Serbian youngster Marko Grujic.

Grujic is said to be flattered by the interest shown by other clubs, but he is fully committed to Red Star Belgrade for the time being.

The 19 year old has been a great performer over the last 12 months, and his performances have enhanced his reputation and gain international recognition with the Serbian Under 21 side. Speaking about his future Grujic said:

“Patience is really important for my career. Some of my peers have decided to leave their respective clubs, while I decided to stay and this turned out to be the right move for me.

“I never doubted my decision to stay in Red Star. This choice could help my future growth, when I move abroad one day. It was a very tempting offer and difficult to refuse, but now things have improved.”

Both Everton and Celtic had scouts present at the Serbian Under 21 game against Italy.

The Everton fans in The Transfer Tavern are pleased to be linked with the player, and although they do not know too much about him are sure he would excel within the academy at the club.
