Everton considering ambitious late move for Real Madrid striker
Reports coming out of England on Monday suggest Everton could make a late move for a striker.
The player being eyed by the Toffees is Real Madrid’s Luka Jovic.
Before he joined Real Madrid in 2019, Jovic was one of Europe’s most in-form strikers, netting 27 and assisting seven across 48 outings in the 2018/19 campaign for Eintracht Frankfurt.
Since his switch to Real Madrid, though, the 24-year-old has seen his form and playing time decrease dramatically.
For Madrid, Jovic has scored just three goals in 47 outings, whilst a loan return to Frankfurt would also not go too well.
Despite this, the Telegraph report that Everton are considering an ambitious late move for Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic, who will be allowed to leave the Bernabeu before the transfer deadline, having started just one Champions League game and one Copa Del Rey tie this season.
It is confirmed that any potential move for the Serbian would be a loan deal.
Jovic had also been linked with Arsenal this month, but that is seemingly not happening despite the Gunners’ lack of striking options.
Donny van de Beek close to Everton
Elsewhere on the Everton front, they are expected to announce the signing of Donny van de Beek on Monday.
The midfielder has had a torrid stint in Manchester since his move from Ajax but now looks set to be loaned to Everton for the rest of 2021/22.
Manchester United and Everton have exchanged documents for Donny van de Beek transfer. Donny will sign on Monday morning – deal likely to be announced on #DeadlineDay. 🔵🤝 #EFC
