Everton could rekindle interest in Fenerbahçe midfielder Miguel Crespo
Everton have reportedly submitted a bid for Fenerbahce midfielder Miguel Crespo during the January transfer window.
According to Sporx, the Turkish club failed to respond to the offer and any chance of a move to Goodison Park vanished due to their reluctance to agree a deal.
However, the Portuguese have been widely scouted by the Toffees and they could return this summer for another official offer.
Even Atletico Madrid are said to be watching Crespo closely, suggesting he is indeed a quality player who could take the Toffees to the next level.
Allan has had his struggles of late while Abdoulaye Doucoure’s injury-prone nature forces the club to surround themselves with reinforcements.
Andre Gomes is clearly not at Everton level either and he will be shipped off once Frank Lampard has plenty of depth in that department.
Donny van de Beek, who was loaned out in January, may not even be at the club beyond this summer.
The new Manchester United boss would certainly want to give him a chance to prove his worth and that means he will only be on Merseyside for a few months.
Signing Crespo would be an ideal move from the Toffees hierarchy as he is the perfect age and would also be a good fit for the Premier League.
