Udinese eye up to £31m for Everton transfer target Beto

Udinese are reportedly looking at a fee in the region in the region of Everton target Beto in the summer transfer window.

According to Mondo Udinese [27 February], the Serie A club will be looking for anything between £27million and £31million in order to sign him.

This will be higher than what they bid for him on transfer deadline day in the January transfer window.

Inflating his price

The Serie A outfit are well aware that Sean Dyche wants the player signed in the summer as well so they’re just looking to inflate his price.

He should be available for cheaper in the summer and they’re only hiking it up knowing full well that the Toffees are desperate to bring him to Goodison Park.

It’s understood that Everton are preparing a £31million bid but it is for Beto and his teammate Rodrigo Becao as Everton want a striker as well as a centre-back.

Once they learn that it is only enough to get them one player, they may end up pulling the plug on the deal and Udinese surely cannot keep their price at what it is.

Both Beto and Becao surely will want to move to a bigger club or a bigger league and it does not get any bigger than the Premier League.

Hopefully, negotiations continue behind the scenes and Everton make some progress in giving Dyche the players that he wants.
