Everton chase after raw Czech defender – would cost around £2.5m for signature

These days, having sushi for lunch isn’t all that exotic wherever in the world you live. It appears that Everton are prepared to order something similar for next season, with Sky Sports reporting that the Merseyside club are in the race to sign Marek Suchy from Slavia Prague.

While it’s clear that the Toffees haven’t got mega-bucks to spend on players, they are generally quite shrewd with these sort of signings, and they only appear to have one other club to fend off, if they’re to secure the player’s signature. Surely the prospect of signing for Everton over Glasgow Rangers is an enticing one?

“I cannot say. A lot depends on the first feeling from negotiations or on how much the coaches will want me in their team,” he commented.

“At the moment there have been some opening negotiations going on.”

David Moyes has demonstrated that he’s prepared to give youth its fling, and would have no qualms about blooding Suchy, providing he wasn’t too raw, like his food-related namesake. Rangers are also not blessed with cash and would love to have the Czech as a potential replacement for Alan Hutton, who joined Spurs last season. Who will win the race for the 20-year-old defender?
