Claim Everton reached agreement with midfielder for January transfer – Now…

first_imgEverton will be forced to pay a high price for Inter Milan midfielder Matías Vecino if they revive their interest in him this summer. That’s according to Corriere dello Sport, who report Inter are not going to be doing any of his suitors any favours in terms of his price tag.The newspaper explains that, like in the January transfer window, Vecino’s future at the Serie A club is likely to be debated.Should Antonio Conte determine that he doesn’t want him, he will be put up for sale and Everton are among the clubs who will be ‘in the running’ for his signature.Embed from Getty ImagesThey were keen in January, and it’s stated they already had an agreement in place with the 28-year-old, but Inter rejected their offer of €12m plus bonuses.Inter will only let him go under ‘favourable conditions’ or, as Corriere put it, for ‘a lot of money’ and have no plan to ‘discount him’ at any point.Indeed, their idea is to try and sell Vecino for as much as possible with their eye on a valuation of €35m, as that was how much they could have made selling him two years ago.If that is their asking price, Everton are likely to look elsewhere.Their funds will not be extensive this summer, and they will consider that price for a 28-year-old as excessive in the extreme.If they were spending such a figure on a new midfielder, it is more likely Marcel Brands would target a younger player who can not only be developed but sold on at a significant profit in future should he do so.Vecino is neither of those things, and unless Inter drop such demands drastically, this potential buyer will inevitably go elsewhere.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a City, Trade With Your Neighbors, Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoHero WarsGetting this Treasure is impossible!
