The Italian football club Salernitana has reportedly set their sights on Everton’s forward Neal Maupay. As per reports from Tutto Salerno, Paulo Sousa’s team is keenly interested in acquiring the Frenchman’s services ahead of the summer transfer window.
Salernitana’s management is hoping that Everton will be open to the idea of allowing Maupay to move on to a new club. However, they are not alone in their pursuit of the striker’s signature. French Ligue 1 outfit Nice is also keeping a close eye on the situation.
Maupay only recently signed for Everton in August 2022, in a deal that saw him commit to a three-year contract with an option for an additional year. The exact amount paid by Everton to bring him in remains undisclosed. However, Maupay has found it difficult to secure regular playing time this season.
Despite featuring in 26 games for Everton, Maupay has only managed to score a solitary goal while providing one assist. Nevertheless, his current market value, according to Transfermarkt, stands at an impressive 13 million euros.

It remains to be seen whether Everton will be willing to part ways with Maupay so soon after signing him. However, with the striker’s prospects of securing regular game time at the club looking increasingly bleak, a move away might be in his best interest.
The interest shown by Salernitana and Nice in Maupay could potentially open up a new opportunity for the striker to reignite his career and showcase his talent in a new league. Only time will tell where the Frenchman ends up, but it is certain that his future will be a topic of much discussion as the summer transfer window draws closer.
