The Everton fans who are gathered at the bar in The Transfer Tavern this evening are discussing their clubs bold approach for the sporting director of the Europa League winners.
The Telegraph is reporting that the Premier League side are set to make a bold move for Sevilla’s sporting director Monchi.
Monchi is thought to be ready for a fresh challenge for next season and his proven track record of transfer dealings during his time with the current Europa League holders has tempted Farhad Moshiri to make an ambitious move to bring him to Goodison Park for next season.
If the wealthy new Toffees backer is successful in bringing the mastermind to the Merseyside this summer it will further enhance the club’s chances of bringing in Unai Emrey.
The Spanish tactician emerged as one of the favourites to takeover from the axed Roberto Martinez and has a close working relationship with the 47-year old technical director.
One example of the type of player that Monchi has an eye for is Dani Alves who joined the club for £150,000 as a 19-year old and left the club six years later for a massive £27 million when he joined Barcelona.
Would Emery be ideal for Everton?
