The winter transfer window is still two months away from officially opening up. However, that does not often stop clubs for making offers to buy players from other clubs.
According to multiple reports emanating from England, Everton are linked with fresh move for Inter Milan left-back Robin Gosens.
The 28-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The left-back has featured in 15 matches for Inter Milan this term, netting one goal in all competitions.
He is considered to be one of the best left-backs in Germany. Gosens has also left his mark at the international stage after netting 2 goals in 14 senior appearances for the Germany national team.
Robin Gosens is one of the more likely players to be offloaded by Inter this winter and the list of suitors in the Germany international continues to grow.
Everton have earmarked Inter Milan left-back Robin Gosens as their target, with Frank Lampard being a ‘huge admirer’ of the player. The report claims that Everton manager has extensively scouted Gosens and is considering a move for the left-back.
The Toffees are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
The former Atalanta man can also play as a full-back, offering Lampard a different option should he change his formation at Everton. He has the quality and the experience to make an immediate impact.
According to the report, “Inter Milan full back Gosens has admirers across Europe. Everton have also joined the long list of clubs who are keen on the German and have enquired about the full back. Since switching from La Dea to Nerazzurri, Gosens’ playing time has dramatically reduced. This season, Gosens has just started one Serie A game and come on as a substitute in eight games, playing a total of 181 minutes. Gosens has looked like a shadow of himself at Inter and the Italian club would be open to an exit as early as January. Bayer Leverkusen could reopen the doors for Gosens but it is Everton who are the latest club to make enquiries about the 28 year old. Gosens’ agent was in attendance at the Inter Milan – Bayern Munich game, to potentially talk to Leverkusen and other German clubs. Lampard has switched between a back four and a back five from time to time, opposition to opposition. Heavily attack-minded Gosens is capable of playing as a left wing back as well as left back but is much more comfortable playing as a wing back. Everton might want to bring in an attacking full back to add competition to Mykolenko and give Lampard flexibility in selection.”
Euro Football Rumours
Considering they don’t have a big budget, Everton will have to be smart with the signings in the transfer window.
The Italian giants would be wise to keep the Germany international, but if they do let him go expect it to be for a hefty sum.
Good signing for Everton?
If Everton and Frank Lampard are seriously considering a left-back, Gosens could also prove to be a smart option.
A left-back of Robin Gosens’ ceiling will be a massive addition to Everton squad as he will not only improve the overall quality of Lampard’s starting XI but also add some stability and variety to his defensive department.
A move to Everton is exactly what Gosens needs to reignite his career, and we hope he is able to do just that.
How strong that interest is and whether Everton will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
