Everton: Toffees expected to sign Matias Vecino following latest report from Italy

Everton: Toffees expected to sign Matias Vecino following latest report from Italy - Everton

Things at Everton have improved of late and the latest report from Italy could be the foundations of a new beginning as midfield reinforcements are finally on the horizon.

Gazzetta Dello Sport (cited by Sport Witness) revealed that the Toffees have submitted an offer for the 28-year-old, with the publication revealing that the Uruguay international ‘said yes’ to the potential move. Carlo Ancelotti’s presence at the club could be instrumental in terms of getting this deal over the line.

Although a price was not disclosed for Vecino in the Italian publication, TransferMarkt values him at £20.7m but the Blues may offer less and compensate part of the payment in bonuses considering his lack of game this during the current campaign, as per Sport Witness.

Vecino has two goals and two assists from 13 Serie A outings this season, which is more than both Morgan Schneiderlin and Tom Davies. Goals from the middle of the park is where Everton severely lack, introducing the 28-year-old to the fold could bring more success in midfield battles and provide opportunities for the likes of Dominic Calvert Lewin and Richarlison to capitalise.

Having averaged 1.9 tackles, one interception and a pass success rate of 75.8% (according to Whoscored), he could be a player that provides a solution to a problem that the team have had since former manager Marco Silva arrived at the club, as per the Liverpool Echo.

Vecino has the potential to be the sort of player to get fans off their seats. With a fanbase that appreciates hard but fair challenges, much like former player Mo Besic who fans adhered to almost straight away for his no-nonsense style of play.

With supporters unhappy with the likes of Schneiderlin and Gylfi Sigurdsson, there is an opportunity for Ancelotti to administer a new lease of life into the side that the fans will love.
