The Uruguayan is currently at the centre of a major media storm after allegedly biting Italy defender Georgio Chiellini in their recent World Cup encounter and with the former Ajax man in line for a potential ban of up to two years, Liverpool face an anxious wait for more news.
In the meantime, Everton could use this distraction to wrap up a deal for Dzsudzsak who was previously identified as a transfer target for both of the Merseyside clubs.
The 27-year-old is reportedly keen to move away from Russia, where he currently plays for Dinamo Moscow.
Speaking to cittaceleste.it, the Hungarian’s agent Jozsef Vorosbaranyi suggested as much: “Balazs Dzsudzsak has indicated his wish; he wants to change country but he’s contracted to Dinamo Moscow.”
Liverpool reportedly tabled a bid of around £12 million for the winger earlier this season and it is thought that a similar amount could see Everton capture the midfielder, as they aim to seal a top four finish next term.
The Reds, meanwhile, continue to be linked to a number of midfielders, including Crystal Palace star Yannick Bolasie, who has emerged as a surprise transfer target in recent days.
Everton are also in the hunt for further reinforcements, with one potential option being Greece striker Georgios Samaras, who is available on a free after being released by Celtic.
