Everton have pulled ahead in the race to sign Ajax wonderkid Justin Kluivert with Manchester United also looking to sign the forward.
The Dutchman is the son of famed footballer Patrick Kluivert and was once tipped for a bright future in football.
Now, he’s not only being tipped for it, he has become one of the most exciting prospects in world football.
Barcelona and Manchester United are the two biggest clubs looking to sign the player but there has been an unexpected name thrown into the mix.
That comes in the form of Everton who are looking at the forward in the hopes that he could take them back into the top six of the Premier League.
While you would typically just dismiss a rumour such as this, there has been some sound logic behind a potential deal.
Apart from the obvious fact that he would likely start every game for the side next season, the player has recently signed with Mino Raiola.
The super agent is reportedly working with Everton this summer to shift several players but also to help with a potential overhaul of the squad.
Not only that, the latest reports from Italy on Thursday suggest that Raiola’s recent fall out with Manchester United has given Everton a clear edge.
The agent offer Paul Pogba to Manchester City and that has certainly put a strain on his relationship with the club.
Now, Tuttosport, cited by the Metro, are suggesting that Raiola will push the player towards Everton.
