RMC Sport claim that the Blues have offered €3m for the 24-year-old defender as Ronald Koeman and Steve Walsh look for reinforcements at the back.
Saint-Etienne are also keen on the Meaux-born defender who plays his international football for the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Ingolstadt are believed to value him at around €8m.

Are Everton entitled to any compensation?
Are his wages paid in full by Argentina for the duration of the injury?
Is this taken into account with Financial Fair play? Meaning we can effectively increase the wage bill with an offset against his wages being paid by Argentina?

Koeman and Walsh must be left to sign players and we get to give a judgment on them once we get to see them.
If Funes Mori moves on then I'd Imagine someone will be brought into replace him.
Williams is the left sided defender of Koeman's choice, Keane must be a cert to start, Galloway has gone on loan along with Browning, Jagielka's future is up in the air and I don't see Pennington being good enough to get into a side in the top half of the Premier League.

Just proves people are here are never happy no matter what the scouts do.
Anthony (#8). Funes Mori is out for a while now so I doubt if he'll be sold.
For all our transfer business, just shows how short we were in some areas as we are still seriously lacking in other positions, one of them being quality center backs. Hopefully it will get rectified soon seeing as we haven't got long until the season starts now.

Imo, Funes Mori is our best header of a ball, and he's quick enough to cover the left-back, unlike Williams.
I've said this before, I'm aware he makes the odd cock-up, but so do most centre-halves. If he played week-in & week-out with Keane, I think he would become one of the most sought-after centre-halves about.

Have you seen those two sentences uttered by the same guy? ;-)
12 Posted 17/07/2017 at 02:57:05
Having said that, I'm not sure we will actually get another one due to needs in other areas, ie. striker, playmaker, winger and full backs! Still quite a hefty list when you think of the players we've already brought in.
Haha David (#11). I haven't paid close enough attention but I think if I dug through posts I'm sure there would be a few! It's obvious both have a place, proven and unproven players, but some people just like to moan for no reason.
13 Posted 17/07/2017 at 07:08:16
Probably those are people belong to different "camps"?
Some of us prefer proven names, some prefer Walsh's gems.

By the end of the window, the rest will be praying we fail!

I would love us to do something truly spectacular and bring in Van Dijk. It would make my summer. If reports are true about him only wanting to sign for Liverpool, then I have to question why? What's the connection?
Surely Koeman sharing an agent and being a family friend would allow him to sell 'our project' to him. What could Klopp have said to convince him over a fellow countryman who has a previous relationship with him? Very frustrating as it's not as if Liverpool are guaranteed regular champions league, and we are clearly on the up.
Van Dijk and Keane together would be formidable. If he goes to the Dark Side then I fear, for all our optimism, they will be a bridge too far this season.
19 Posted 17/07/2017 at 10:11:34
But I wouldn't take the Van Dijk "I only want Liverpool" crap. I think that is the lovely press and their Liverpool fascination / love-in bollocks in full swing. Typical bullshit coverage they get.
Having said that, if they do get him, I would love Southampton to report them to the FA, Uefa and Fifa so they get a nice transfer ban.

(I bow deferentially to Neil.)
23 Posted 17/07/2017 at 12:19:38
I'm assuming we'd only put in a bid if Koeman's and Van Dijk's agent had given it the nod.
24 Posted 17/07/2017 at 12:43:00
25 Posted 17/07/2017 at 12:49:29
Having said that, the injury problem may decide his future and Everton need cover on the left side before the season starts.

Crystal Palace signed Jairo Riedewald, dutch defender. Paper talk is they are interested in Bruno Martins Indi & 6 other defenders including the redshite one. But this is false news is only used to sell newspapers.
Martins Indi is still a Porto player at present.
I hope Van Dijk's agent has given the nod. About time we got another one over on the dirty Red Shite.

Reports say that because Frank de Boer now at Palace, he has signed, but on their website there is no mention, and newspaper rumours (I know) are saying the deal has been interrupted due to interest, from another Premier League Club, believed to be us!
I hope it is, he would fit in and with the Dutch connection and our manager, who knows?
