Further to yesterday’s suggestion that Everton’s Leighton Baines is wanted at Eastlands, from Italy comes some background activity that may add to the reasons why.
According to Corriere dello Sport… Juan Manuel Vargas could be on his way to Roma and should Fiorentina let him leave then Pantaleo Corvino Forentina’s Sporting Director will set about finding a replacement. Number one on his wish list is none other than one Aleksandar Kolarov.
Corvino told the Italian press, “The cycle started in 2005, which saw us become protagonists in Italy and in Europe is over,” he said. “Now we would like to start another one.” Whatever that actually means.
€15 million for Kolorov? A good bit of business if Leighton Baines can be lured from Everton, but an unnecessary one if he can’t. I would be surprised if David Moyes’ resolve proves weak and after the whole ‘Lescott’ business I can see the Goodison transfer door being kept slammed firmly shut.
