The summer transfer rumours start here. There have been big names come and gone from other Premiership clubs; however my focus is on my team Everton. So here it is, the list of names to be linked with a move to Merseyside in June.
STRIKER SEARCH – With the lack of Strikers Everton have got, with only Yakubu, Saha and Vaughan to choose from, there have been a number of strikers heavily linked with the club. Michael Owen for one has been linked with a number of clubs including Everton. Hull and Stoke are reportedly interested in the Striker. Another Newcastle player is on the agenda. Obafemi Martins is the other Newcastle striker to be linked with the Toffees. He will be a good signing for Everton if he does decide to move from Newcastle to Merseyside. The former Chelsea striker Eider Gudjohnson has been linked with Everton aswell. However if he does decide to move Fulham, Aston Villa and West Ham are also possible moves for him. Lastly Reading striker Kevin Doyle has been strongly linked with a number of Premiership clubs including Everton.
FOOTBALL LEAGUE RAID – A number of talented Football League player’s have been linked with Everton in June. Joe Ledley of Cardiff has been lined up as signing for the Toffees. One of the best player’s in the Championship, Ledley has been linked with Everton three times including this month. So he might be a very possible signing. Stephen Hunt of Reading could follow Kevin Doyle to Merseyside in which could well be a double swoop for Everton. Stephen Hunt has been heavily linked with a move to the Premiership but Everton do face stiff competition. Sheffield United Kyle Naughton has also been linked with Everton. The right-back could well give Tony Hibbert competition if David Moyes signs him. Naughton loves getting forward and that what Everton needs. With Naughton on the right and Baines on the left, Everton will be dangerous. Lastly Fabian Delph of Leeds has been linked with a move to Everton. The centre midfielder has impressed a number of Premiership clubs including Everton but many clubs like Arsenal and Manchester United want the youngster aswell.
The Other Rumours – Three other players’ have been linked with Everton in June and two of them play in the Premier League. So firstly Jermaine Pennant of rivals Liverpool has been linked with Everton. It only means that Pennant will just have to move across Merseyside to Everton. However Pennant has been linked with the likes of Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid which is a surprise. Also Micah Richards of Man City has been linked in what could be a swap deal for Jolean Lescott. Richards will be a good replacement as he can play at Right-Back and Centre Back, Centre back being the position where Lescott played much of last season. Lastly Stephane Mbia of Rennes has been linked with a move to England where Everton could be a favoured choice. He has been linked with Everton three times this month, so does that mean Stephane Mbia the Rennes centre midfield will be Everton’s next signing?
