Rangers financial peril has already seen Everton scoop one star striker at a knockdown price of such good value that even Bill Kenwright was willing to meet it, and it appears that Old Bill is ready to dig out a cheque addressed to Rangers’ administrators once again.
Italian media outlet Tuttomercatoweb report that the Toffee are lining up a £2 million bid for Jelavic’s former strike partner Steven Naismith, after the Scottish international produced an impressive season despite the chaos surrounding his current club.
Everton still look short of depth in the forward department and the inability of Rangers to play financial hard ball coupled with Jelavic & Naismith being familiar with each others games could make the Scotsman the perfect solution.
Tuttomercatoweb‘s coverage of British football also stretches to Swansea with the agency reporting that the Swans have filed a bid for Nottingham Forest full back Chris Gunter, believed to be in the region of £2 million.
Gunter has previously failed to make the grade in the top flight during a brief spell at Tottenham but has impressed with his performances both for Wales and Forest. At 22 years old Brendan Rodgers may well feel that Gunter’s abilities can be tailored to suit the Swan’s style of play, and provide competition for places in the full back positions.
Finally to round off Tuttomercatoweb‘s serving of British transfer rumours we need to grab our bucket and spade ready to head to Blackpool. After several impressive loans spells at an array of clubs, most recently helping Bury enjoy a comfortable season, it is reported that the Seasiders are finally ready to offer 21 year old Ashley Eastham a long term contract.
