Everton & Wolves Both ‘Close’ To Landing €8m Serie A Sensation

Wolves and Everton are both keeping tabs on Catania striker Maxi Lopez, according to LesTraferts.com. The 27 year-old Argentine striker has caught the attention of the Premier League sides with his impressive performances in Serie A over the last 12 months.

The striker has been with Catania for just over a year and a half and he has a decent goals return for them, scoring 22 goals in 57 appearances for the Italians.

Lopez has apparently fallen out with Catania Coach Vincenzo Montella recently, having been left out of the first eleven for their match against Juventus and the striker may be looking to leave the club in January.

This news seems to have alerted Everton in particular as they are in desperate need of a striker after selling Jermaine Beckford and Yakubu Aiyegbeni in August.

At the moment David Moyes only has Louis Saha and the inexperienced duo of Denis Stracqualursi and Apostolos Vellios as his recognised strikers. Everton could potentially be lining up a bid for the former Barcelona striker as he could be available for around €6 million.

But Everton are not the only team interested in Maxi Lopez, as Italian sides Lazio and Novara have also been credited with an interest, as well as Mick McCarthy’s Wolves. But David Moyes will be hoping that he can tempt the striker with the offer of first team football in the Premier League.
