Everton Eye Strange Transfer For Ex-Liverpool Favourite

Everton seem to love a no. 10, ever since that summer where they decided to buy about 15 of them under Ronald Koeman.

More recently they have James Rodriguez and Gylfi Sigurdsson for the position, as well as Alex Iwobi's claims that he can play there. Carlo Ancelotti has been busy trying to find a way to fit the first two in the team and ignoring the latter by putting him at right-back.

However, the Toffees seem to think that this a position they need to strengthen, according to the latest rumours.

This is despite other areas of the pitch also looking like they need some updates, such as a long term replacement for Seamus Coleman or some kind of back-up for Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

According to Tz, the Merseyside outfit are looking at the availability of one of fierce rivals Liverpool's former fan favourites, Philippe Coutinho, and are willing to pay €40 million (£34.8m) for him.

Now at Barcelona, Coutinho may be available this summer after a topsy-turvy season at the Nou Camp.

The Brazilian started off playing regularly under Koeman, but a knee injury then ruled him out - which also coincided with the Blaugrana's turnaround in form.

As such, the Catalan side may now be thinking that they don't need the 28-year-old.

While Coutinho's history with Liverpool might cause him some trouble at Goodison Park, he would be following a well-trodden path from the Nou Camp to Everton. In the current squad, Andre Gomes, Yerry Mina, and Lucas Digne have all been signed from the La Liga giants.
