Everton quest to sign Udinese striker Beto may hinge on Mateo Retegui transfer

Everton quest to sign Udinese striker Beto in the summer transfer window may reportedly hinge on Mateo Retegui’s future.

According to Mondo Udinese [14 March], the Serie A club wanted to sign him in January and had they succeeded, they perhaps would’ve let Beto leave for Everton.

However, the Portuguese striker’s to Goodison Park cannot be ruled out as it may now hinge on whether or not his club are able to bring in someone this summer.

Beto fits the bill perfectly for what one would describe as the ideal Sean Dyche striker and it seems like a match made in heaven.

He’s tall, mobile and impeccable at bringing others into the game.

Apart from that, he’s also capable of finding the back of the net with precision and he’s the kind of signing that Dyche would prioritise once the window opens.

He wanted another attacker in January but the Everton board let him down and with the sale of Anthony Gordon, gave him an even weaker team.

Beto would be a great signing for the Toffees, but the only issue may be the asking price as Udinese are looking to make a decent payday from his sale.

They want north of £30million if they are to sell the 25-year-old and his valuation may be something that puts off the hierarchy from making any attempts to sign him.
