The Dane was reportedly a top target for the Blues during the January transfer window even though he had already agreed to sign for the German club from FC Copenhagen for just €1.5m.
Everton were reportedly trying to tempt the player to Goodison Park with an offer to Bremen of £5m but their hopes of landing him this season were scuppered when they the handed Delaney his debut, thereby making him ineligible to play for a third club in the same season.
As the DT in Denmark report (via the Liverpool Echo report, however, should Werder Bremen be relegated from the Bundesliga this season, the door could be opened to the Blues again – the rationale being that the 25-year-old would be forced to take a wage cut and his club might look at making a quick profit on him.
Bremen are currently third from bottom in Germany's top flight.

We need a second top striker and a really quality, tall, commanding centre back as our main priorities.

I don't understand the comment 'we dithered'. We agreed a fee with the club. We agreed terms with the player. Then Arsenal matched our bid. He chose a club in the Champions League.
So okay, we may have gone back and offered more money. But would we want a player who chose money over glory? I wouldn't.
