Everton receive a transfer boost as Inter Milan has decided to put Matias Vecino on the market.
Not one single Everton fan will oppose the argument that Tom Davies has done a decent job at Everton since the restart. He has been pathetic in the middle of the park often failing to control the tempo of the game, something you would expect from a midfielder.
The 22 year old has simply not fulfilled the expectations of the club management and the supporters. He looks a distorted figure often failing to thread intelligent passes. The injuries to Fabian Delph and Jean-Philippe Gbamin has been a benefit to Davies, otherwise, with the kind of games the Englishman is having, he would have been dropped way before from the team.
The Toffees need to have a midfielder who can control the game and dictate the play. Tom Davies is simply not the correct man for that responsibility, nor is Andre Gomes. Both these players are creators and not very suited to act as pivots or do the job of driving the ball forward from their own goal area.
However, Everton may be boosted by the availability of Matias Vecino in the transfer market. Inter Milan have decided to sell the Uruguayan midfielder in the summer transfer window as the Nerazzurri continue to make room for new signings.

According to Calciomercato, Antonio Conte’s side has decided to put Matias Vecino on transfer list along with Roberto Gagliardini. This could be welcome news for the Toffees who have previously been linked to the 28 year old.
Perceived from the game against Southampton, the Blues need a midfielder who can anchor the team, move forward with the ball and pick out the free man. Gomes is more suited to make slick passes in the final third but not building up the play. Vecino is a textbook option for that.
The central midfielder has the physicality to regulate the play and the power to drive the ball forward. Vecino has an eye to pick long passes, which is highly advantageous in the direct possession play Everton employ under Ancelotti.
The report further added that Matias Vecino will be available for a fee of around €20 million, which could be a steal considering Everton’s woes in midfield. A separation with Inter is almost fixed considering he just played 22 minutes since the restart. Vecino and Everton could be the perfect match that could turn into reality this summer.
