Everton among clubs chasing Valencia

 Comments (11)  jump
Everton, Newcastle and apparent favourites Tottenham have all been linked with Ecuadorian striker Enner Valencia who is the subject of confirmed bids.

The 25 year-old scored has scored 18 times in 23 games since Joining Pachuca in January and has three goals to his name in the World Cup.

The club's vice-president, Andres Vassi, is aware of how difficult it's going to be to keep hold of Valencia given his performances in Brazil.

"Enner Valencia's value increases every day. We don't know if he will stay, it will be hard given the offers we have received," he told Mexican ESPN.

I really do hope we have a realistic chance of getting this player, without getting into some sort of silly auction, and paying crazy money!

I genuinely believe he has got something to bring to the Everton table, he is at the right sort of age too!

Watched Honduras yesterday and wondered if Costly would be a cheap option... :)

This is pathetic.

99% of these journo's hadn't even heard of Valencia until he bagged a few in the World Cup.

Let's link him to...Everton?!?! Why not?!

It would be a 'costly' mistake (excuse the pun). I remember the commentator saying he has had 10 clubs in 8 years (so he is no spring chicken for one).

One of those clubs was Birmingham City, and he didn't leave any impression there!

I'd stay well clear, Gerry!

Or Derek Knox (#366), we could bid for Immobile to replace Big Vic (keep the puns comin').

Have not spotted any forward in this World Cup as Sharp as Graeme was. The Argentine front line looks Messi. But maybe Miroslav can bring us Klose to 4th.

Doesn't every World Cup throw up these kind of players emerging from nowhere?

In 2002, wasn't it El Hadj Diouf? £10m the other lot spunked on him, and whilst he scored a couple on his debut, he proved far more accurate when it came to firing phlegm.

The fact his club are talking his value up after 6 months suggests they would welcome the auction.

I’m with you, Phil Sammon, the papers just want to link players who were unheard of and doing well at present in this World Cup with any clubs going.

His record seems good for Pachuca and he’s started this World Cup great but, IF we were to be interested, I’d like to think we’ve done our homework on this kid and not just wanted him on the back of a couple of games this World Cup!

Good on ya mate, several 'Amigos' obscured my vision somewhat (can't think why) so didn't spot the smiley.

It's just having a bit of a laugh in this crazy world of transfer speculation, at the end of the day!

Seriously though, do hope we get a few quality additions before we kick off in earnest!

Yes, great idea – let's spend a load of money on a player nobody had heard of until he scored a few goals against the might of Switzerland and Honduras. He's got to be a quality player, eh?

He scored 18 goals in 23 games in the Mexican league last year, whatever that means.
