Everton boss David Moyes is considering making a move for Molde’s 24-year-old full back Knut Olav Rindaroy as he looks to strengthen his team this transfer window. The full back has been a regular for Molde for several years now and even broke into the Norway team for the first time in 2009.
Rumours that Rindaroy was headed to Liverpool for a trial with Everton have been practically confirmed by Molde director Tarje Nordstrand Jacobsen who skysports.com quote as saying
“I can confirm that Knut Olav according to plans will visit Everton from Tuesday to Thursday. We have got signals that they want to fly him over so that he gets to see the club and meet with them. But that doesn’t mean than anything is clear yet.”
Whilst Molde consider Rindaroy an important player for the team they would be willing to sign him, providing the right price is offered, and have already signed a replacement for the left back in Emil Johansson. Nordstrand Jacobsen added
“Of course we are looking at getting the best possible price for Knut Olav but at the same time are realistic to what the market looks like and that the contract expires after this season.”
Everton will expect to pay no more than a couple of million pounds for Rindaroy and will be hoping he can make a similar impact in England as fellow Norwegian defender Brede Hangeland of Fulham.
