Everton transfer news
In this article we will bring you all of today’s Everton transfer news. Make sure to check back to the site for more daily transfer updates throughout the rest of this month.
Bid planned for Hoppe
First up, Everton look to be eyeing a move for young forward, Matthew Hoppe.
Hoppe is currently plying his trade with Schalke, who he joined in July of 2019.
Despite his tender years, Hoppe would feature 22 times in the Bundesliga for a poor Schalke side last term. And whilst they would in the end be relegated, Hoppe still scored six and assisted one.
And now, as per journalist Ekrem Konur, Everton have met with Schalke to get information about the American.
It is added that the Toffees are planning to bid £2m for Hoppe, whose current contract runs until 2023.
