After watching their £11.8m bid for Sporting ace, Joao Moutinho, get rejected to the ground, Everton look to be at it again in the pursuit of a big name transfer target. They, as well as Tottenham look to be hot on the heels of this certain winger.
Everton want Middlesbrough winger Stewart Downing but face competition from Tottenham. (News of the World)
Downing might not be a big name winger option for either club, but after the season he had last year at Boro, both clubs should probably consider an upgraded option from what they currently have. Boro were currently asking around £9m, so that figure shouldn’t be too far out of either clubs reach. All that remains to be seen is if Everton or Tottenham truly want his services. What do you think Everton and Tottenham supporters? Do you want Downing on your squad next season?
