📢BREAKING NEWS : Everton Receives Transfer Advantage as Target Opts for Premier League Over Barcelona


Everton target Jaden Philogene has spoken about his future amid strong interest from several clubs.

The Hull City winger enjoyed a brilliant campaign in the Championship last season, with his star side on the brink with his mix of skill, pace and star quality. So much so that he began to attract the attention of elite clubs such as Barcelona.

Nevertheless, they were only interested in the loan of the English U21 international. The likes of Everton, Crystal Palace and Ipswich are said to be “preferred” over a potential move as Philogene look to make the step up to the Premier League.

The forward also ruled himself out of a move to Barcelona when speaking to @QueThiJugues. “I chose the Premier League because it’s the clearest offer I have, but my dream is still La Liga. Barça is my dream, I hope I can sign for it one day. My idols are Ronaldinho and Neymar.”

Sean Dyche has already welcomed back two strikers in Iliman Ndiaye, as well as Jack Harrison, who has re-signed on loan after struggling last season. It is clear that the club needs wide forwards to give them more options. They let graduate Lewis Dobbin leave the academy for £10million last month and are looking to improve their attacking unit after finishing last season with the lowest goals from open play in the league.

Hull City had chances to qualify for the play-offs with a squad that included Fabio Carvalho, Tyler Morton, Jacob Greaves and Philogene, but Liam Rosenior failed to make it to the sack. Instead, both Liverpool players are already back at their parent club, Philogene and Greaves are two players who could also leave. 

There’s no doubt it’s been a successful season for Philogene, whose goal against Rotherham – which involved setting up a defender before cutting back to unleash a rabona cross that was deflected towards goal – only helped to raise his profile. During the season, he achieved 2.27 passes, 2.5 successful attacks, 2.79 successful dribbles, 1.66 chances created, 3.71 shots, 34% shooting accuracy and 10% goal conversion per 90 minutes. 

With interest from several clubs, Everton will be hoping they can offer him a project where he will be central and someone who can grow into a star at the club. There is a clear place for him on the right wing where he would get regular minutes in the Premier League – and Everton hope that could be enough to convince him.
