Everton plot 'daring' move for Immobile

| Sunday, 22 March 2020 14comments  |  Jump to last

Carlo Ancelotti has identified Ciro Immobile as a top target for the summer according to an "exclusive" from 90min.

The Lazio striker has been on fire this season and was Serie A's top scorer with 27 goals in 26 games before the Italian league was shut down by the coronavirus pandemic

With that scoring rate Immobile would be very expensive and, being 30, he doesn't fit the age profile that Marcel Brands has identified as Everton's target so this is a story that is unlikely to have legs but stranger things have happened.

Amazing striker, but it all depends on how much (for a 30 year old), what contract, what wage. Can you imagine what our terrible trio (Richarlison, DCL and Kean) could learn from him.

Thanks guys. I wanted this one posted so I can come up with the barbed comment.

Why do we want him? We already have an Immobile - but we call him Gylfi Sigurðsson.

I'll get me coat.. . .

Fairly consistently prolific in Italy. Ok in Dortmund. Ok for Italy. Not great at Sevilla. Since we're strong up front already it seems a very unlikely signing, especially given age and possibly huge expense.

Donnarumma, however, ticks an awful lot if boxes if we're going Italian.

Depends on the deal and if we shift a few out then it may release some funds. I am sure Carlo knows what he is doing.

Ah Phil beat me to the "Immobile" joke :) There are plenty of names you could have used though.

Phil I think we have several other of his family members also in our current squad - Gylfi is just the elder brother!!

So disappointed that someone got in with the Immobile joke before me. Would have done it earlier but one loses all concept of time whilst in self-isolation. Not even sure what day of the week it is as football and Saturdays were always my reference point. Stay safe everyone!

Knowing us we’ll probably end up buying Imodium.

Colin - if he can stop the back end leaking I won't complain :) (i'll get my coat now lol)

It should also harden us up and stiffen our resolve.

Oh hang on, that’s that geezer from Inter, Cialis.

There's no way he'll move.

We absolutely do need older players in the team. Sign this player and a leader for centre midfield no matter what it costs. If they did for the team what Gray and Reid did that would do me.

Phil @2 To target only GS with the lack of mobility pun was being kind to many of the other players.

Jim @12 Now you're talking. Players with more backbone like Gray and Reid would be welcome.
