Reportedly available for just £13.5m, PSG midfielder Christopher Nkunku would be superb for Everton

Christopher Nkunku of Paris Saint-Germain looks on during warmup before the Ligue 1 match between Paris Saint-Germain and Angers SCO at Stade Raymond Kopa on May 11, 2019 in Angers, France.

Everton should consider making a move for the PSG ace this summer.

Marco Silva the head coach

Central midfield will surely be an area where Everton boss Marco Silva wants to improve this summer.

Idrissa Gueye has been linked with a £30 million move to Paris Saint-Germain, according to the Sun, whist Morgan Schneiderlin is set to turn 30 before the turn of the year.

And with this in mind, an excellent option for them could be PSG ace Christopher Nkunku, who is available for just £13.5 million this summer, according to French publication L'Equipe.

 

A graduate from France's famed Clairefontaine football academy, the 21-year-old is a real talent, and he would be a superb addition for Everton.

Nkunku started off as a winger but developed into a central midfielder. He possesses exceptional technical ability and has a wonderful range of passing.

The PSG ace once compare this playing style to Marco Verratti, as quoted by talkSPORT:

"I am similar to him because I am pint-sized. I love to play football and it is when I have the ball at my feet that one can see my qualities, like Marco Verratti."

Nkunku could form a wonderful central midfield partnership with Andre Gomes at Goodison Park, and his ability to play in an orthodox role or in the deep-lying midfield position would be a real asset for Everton.

And for the price of just £13.5 million, Nkunku could turn out to be a real coup for the Merseyside outfit. If Silva does manage to bring him to Goddison Park, it could turn out to be a signing of real significance for Everton.
