Everton fans in the Transfer Tavern will be disappointed by the season they have had and will be looking for the team to be better next time around, however, it appears they may have some trouble getting some deals over the line.
Sam Allardyce is keen to add additions to the squad he inherited from Ronald Koeman in October, having already signed the likes of Theo Walcott and Cenk Tosun in the winter, but he appears to have hit a stumbling block.
The Toffees are keen on signing Frank Fabra from Boca Juniors, however, reports from Argentina-based media publication Extra are claiming that a deal cannot be concluded due to an ongoing disagreement over the Colombia international’s valuation.
Everton is known to be in the market for a left-back, with little cover for Leighton Baines, but the Argentine club is demanding around £9million for the 27-year-old. Locals in the Tavern will be hoping their team can get a deal done, with reported interest from Napoli building.
Everton fans in the Tavern will be hoping the club can seal a deal for Fabra as quickly as possible, as they lack enough cover on the left-hand side of the defence. A number of the locals would not be concerned by the £9m price-tag, as they have the financial backing behind them and will want the club to spend to help them achieve their aims of European football.
