📢REPORT : Everton FC is reportedly set to make a substantial offer exceeding £25 million for a highly regarded January target in the very near future


After recent transfer windows have been marred by financial sanctions, Everton are finally looking to open their checkbook this summer and reward Sean Dyche for preventing relegation from the Premier League last season.

Everton are looking for new talent

The latest news from Goodison Park links Everton with a move for in-demand free agent Wilfred Ndidi. The Nigerian midfielder is set to leave Leicester City as a free agent after his contract expired at the end of last month. An announcement on Everton’s £16.9m signing of former Sheffield United player Iliman Ndiaye is also expected soon.

Another midfielder on the Toffees’ target list is former Liverpool man Arthur Melo. The Brazilian spent last season on loan at Fiorentina and is now set to leave parent club Juventus on a free transfer. The midfielder has struggled with injury during his time at Anfield but could be an asset to Dyche’s side if he can stay fit.

With the midfielder clearly high on the Toffees’ priority list, Everton are set to make a bid for the talented player, who has interest from another Premier League club.

Kola is competing to sign the Benfica midfielder

As first reported by Sport Witness, the Portuguese press claim that Everton will battle Leicester City for Benfica’s Florentino Luis. The report says the Foxes are preparing a bid for the 24-year-old midfielder, with Everton set to submit their offer in the coming weeks.

Luis has long been linked with a move to Goodison Park, with Sport Witness saying the Portugal youth international was on the Toffees’ target list back in January. A report in May also suggested that Everton would be keen to sign the player during the summer window.

Recent developments have shown that Everton will now be willing to make an offer for Luis, but will now have to compete with another Premier League side to seal the deal. Luis was one of the standout players in the Portuguese league last season, making 30 appearances as Benfica finished second in the league.
The 24-year-old’s spell at Benfica has earned him plaudits from across Portuguese football. Luis’ former coach at Benfica, Rui Vitória, praised the midfielder, telling reporters: “Florentino Luis is an exceptional talent. He has the qualities any coach would want in a midfielder: tenacity, intelligence and technique.”

Although Everton’s interest in Luis is now clear, the Toffees may have to pay a hefty fee to secure the player’s services. Sport Witness claim that Benfica have already rejected a £25million bid from the English side, meaning Everton will have to fork over that figure to bring their man to Goodison Park.
