The story of Everton being linked to Udinese striker Beto continues to gain momentum. With the Toffees searching for a striker in the summer transfer window, some of the old target links have started to surface. Everton’s priority in the summer transfer window hasn’t changed from what was in the winter transfer window.

Everton were desperately seeking reinforcements in attack in the winter transfer window but failed to get any deal over the line. Udinese striker Beto was one of the top targets for EFC and an attempt was made by the club to sign him in the January transfer window. In the final days of the transfer window, the Merseysiders submitted a bid of around €25 million which was rejected by the Serie A outfit.

Udinese hierarchy is well aware that this time around, keeping Beto at the club will be a tough job. Udinese expect the Portuguese to depart this summer with a number of clubs interested in the 25 year old.

Everton to return for Udinese striker Beto

According to Tutto Udinese (via Sport Witness), EFC seem ready to return to the charge for Beto. The article does mention’s Everton’s important January bid which was turned down as the Italian club were reluctant to let him go in January. Udinese are expecting an overhaul of their attack and Beto is slated to leave. He has been described as one of the most wanted strikers in Europe after two fruitful campaigns in Serie A.

In 2021-22 season, the Portuguese striker netted 11 goals in Serie A in 28 games. He was again able to replicate similar form this term and reach double figure goal tally in Serie A, netting 10 goals in 34 Serie A outings.

EFC are ready to return for the striker and make a second bid as Sean Dyche prepares add lethal strikers to the roster. Another report claims that Udinese value their forward at €35 million and that is what it will take for them to sanction the sale.

Given Everton’s fragile financial position, they might not be in a place to splash €35 million on a single player as other positions also need to be strengthened. Perhaps, EFC need to offload some deadwood and generate money before they can go big in the transfer market. Instead, signing a cheaper option will be a smart move and EFC must look into other alternatives.
