A distinct pattern is emerging in Everton’s summer transfer targets as the Toffees are eyeing players who are set to become free agents in the summer after seeing out contracts with their current side. Eintracht Frankfurt attacking midfielder Daichi Kamada has been mentioned as a player Everton are keeping tabs on.

The Toffees could go into rebuild mode in the summer but first, they need to ensure their Premier League status remains intact. If they fail to survive the relegation battle, attracting players will prove to be difficult. While Sean Dyche and the team work on escaping relegation, the recruiting department works on identifying potential players that can uplift Everton’s squad quality.

It appears that Bundesliga is going to be a happy hunting ground for the Toffees as Hoffenheim midfielder Dennis Geiger emerged as a target earlier. The German is out of contract in the summer and Everton look to take advantage of the situation. Geiger is free to discuss the terms of a pre-contract with foreign clubs and is on the radar of Everton, Frankfurt and Benfica.

The Toffees are without a playmaker or a competent forward who can create ample chances for the strikers. Goalscoring has been a major issue for the club and Everton haven’t been able to solve the problem in the winter transfer window. At this point, Alex Iwobi is the only creative player going forward. Free agent Isco has been loosely linked but no concrete negotiations have taken place.

Everton eyeing a free transfer for Daichi Kamada in the summer transfer window

According to Liverpool ECHO, Everton are following Frankfurt midfielder Kamada. The Toffees could snap up the Japanese international on a free transfer this summer. The 26 year old could be available for a free transfer as he looks to run down his current deal at Eintracht Frankfurt.

Apart from the Blues, Tottenham Hotspur is also following Kamada. The 26 year old has been impressive for the Bundesliga outfit, scoring 13 goals and making five assists in 27 games this season. Kamada is one of the best performers of the Frankfurt team but his future remains uncertain.

Eintracht Frankfurt director Markus Krosche recently admitted that the future of the 26 year old will be settled in the ‘next few weeks’. Kamada has no intention to extend his stay with Frankfurt and will look to leave the Bundesliga outfit in the summer as he looks for a new challenge.
