The January transfer window has begun and understandably, Everton are getting linked with a host of attackers as Frank Lampard aims to strengthen and stabilize the attack. The name of Largie Ramazani has floated in the Everton transfer news section and there have been some exciting developments.
Ramazani left the Manchester United U23 setup in 2020 and joined Almeria for a mere fee of €450,000. Since then, Ramazani has broken onto the scene at Almeria and gone on to establish himself as a mainstay in the Almeria attack.
According to AS, the Belgian attacker has attracted interest from Everton in the January transfer window but Almeria’s stance has been very clear. The Spanish side will hold onto the €40 million release clause and will not budge from that figure.
Ramazani has played 15 games this season and scored twice. The 21 year old is capable of playing anywhere across the attack but has often been deployed as a left winger or as a centre forward.
Everton target Largie Ramazani will say ‘Yes’ to a Premier League offer
Since Everton’s interest in Ramazani has been discovered, there have been developments as Spanish publication Estadio Deportivo has an update on Ramazani’s stance and whether a transfer is imminent in the winter transfer window.
As per the information from player’s camp, the Belgian attacker is happy at Almeria as he continues to develop into a more complete player. However, Ramazani has conveyed it to his entourage that he would say ‘Yes’ to any proposal that comes from the Premier League. His entourage further hinted that his career progression is going to be far from Almeria.
This is surely a transfer boost for Everton who are targeting Ramazani to boost their attack. The stumbling block here are the finances. Everton may not have €40 million to spend and it is clear that Almeria will not do business for anything less.
Convincing the player will not be a problem as Ramazani is ready to say yes to a move to the Premier League. Everton need to sort out their finances and spend wisely because Lampard will need more than just Ramazani to bolster the attack.
The 21 year old possesses talent but still has gaps to fill in his game and Everton will have to bet on Ramazani to overcome those deficiencies, but, at the price of €40 million, it is a huge risk, one that the Toffees shouldn’t take given their current situation.
Lampard needs to find solutions and find them fast as the Toffees hover over the relegation zone.
