Everton's chase for Delaney might not be over

| Thursday, 16 February 2017  9 Comments  [Jump to last]
Everton's interest in signing midfielder Thomas Delaney might not have been ended by Werder Bremen's acquisition of him last month.

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.

It is not more midfielders we need.

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

Thomas Joseph Delaney. Clearly a classic Danish name!

What about Perez who is now regretting joining Arsenal and wants away? He wants to get the nod for the Spanish World Cup squad!

Delaney is crap! A Championship player at best.

Why do we need as a priority a tall centre back when we have 3 quality centre backs and 3 promising youngsters in that position. I agree with improving on what we have though as a priority we must buy a left mid who can link up with Baines. Its totally negligent that we arent using his full potential.

I can't imagine Bremen being relegated to be honest. But so far Delaney has been a good buy for them and scored a nice set piece goal this weekend just before he was taken to hospital with facial fractures. But he has stood out since he joined. Not sure though if we have enough of same... we still need a creator and maestro in midfield.

I agree with Trevor #4. Perez was never going to be the main man for Arsenal and he is now apparently regretting going there. Hope he sees sense if he has hopes of making the Spanish team. We dithered as usual in the summer but hope we might be able to tempt him away this year.

Brian (#8),

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.
