Everton are reportedly interested in Ante Rebic.
Everton are reportedly eyeing a move which would potentially spell the end for Kieran Dowell’s chances at the club.
Calciomercato report Everton are interested in signing Ante Rebic from Eintracht Frankfurt.
Rebic played a prominent role in getting Croatia to the World Cup final last year and has scored 10 goals for Frankfurt this season.
The Mirror reported Rebic has been valued at £35 million in the past year.
Impact of signing Rebic
Rather than playing out wide as he did at the World Cup, Rebic has featured as a central attacking midfielder this season at club level.
His biggest threat at Everton would be Gylfi Sigurdsson who is 29.
Rebic, 25, would compete with the Icelandic international, and such is his versatility, that both could fit into the same side
Competition for places would be healthy for Everton and take the pressure off Sigurdsson.
The big loser would be youngster Kieran Dowell.
Dowell, 21, was unable to make enough of an impression on Marco Silva in the first half of the season that he was sent out on loan.
His spell at Sheffield United has been tough, and he has featured mostly as a substitute.
He faces an uphill task as it is. Rebic arriving would be a clear signal it’s time to move on.
