Everton sporting director Marcel Brands has confirmed that the agent of Rubin Kazan winger KhvichaKvaratskheliahas contacted over a possible move to the Merseyside club. The Toffees director made this known in a chat with Russian publication Soccer. According to him, the agent of the £25m winger has reached out to Everton over the possibility of signing for the Premier League outfit.
Kvaratskheliais a young, versatile and technically gifted player attracting the interest of a lot of clubs on the European football scene. The 20-year-old has been in very good form for Rubin Kazan in the Russian league. He has found the back of the net four times plus a further eight assists in the Russian Premier League.
Brands says the agent of the player contacted him to find out if the player was on theirshortlist. Despite the interest in the player from a lot of clubs on the European continent, the Toffees don’t have an interest in the player. The Everton director said the reported Toffees interest in the Rubin Kazan winger is only a rumour.
Everton sporting director Brands is responsible for spotting talents that would bolster the playing roster at the club. He was responsible for talents like Mexican international Hirving Lozano, Belgian international Dries Mertens and Argentine goalkeeper Sergio Romero while he was in the Dutch Eredivisie.
Lozano and Mertens are presently on the books of Italian Serie A club Napoli, while Romero is at Premier League giants Manchester United.
Everton have been linked with a free transfer move for Romero this summer with his contract at Manchester United set to expire in a few weeks time. Italian teams Juventus and AS Roma are also keen on signing the 34-year-old shot stopper.
