Everton are said to have had a bid accepted for Mbaye Diagne, but the transfer does appear unlikely.

Everton fans are not buying reports that they have had a bid accepted for Mbaye Diagne.

Fanatik in Turkey claims that Everton are keen on the Galatasaray forward, and are closing in on signing him.

However, Everton supporters think that the transfer report is way wide of the mark.

It does seem highly unlikely that Everton would be keen on Diagne.

The Toffees bought Cenk Tosun from the Turkish league only for him to flop, and that may well have put them off returning.

 

Diagne is also 27, which puts him above the age of Everton’s usual additions.

If Diagne was brought to Goodison Park it would surely only be in a covering role, rather than as a starter.

Everton seem to have turned to Moise Kean to be their new number nine for the new season, with his move from Juventus expected to go through very soon, as reported by the Daily Mail.
