Everton defender Johnny Heitinga has admitted he would be interested in a move to Bayern Munich.
Bayern and Bundesliga rivals Wolfsburg have both been linked with the Dutch international in recent weeks with a view to a move in the January transfer window.
Heitinga, who joined Everton from Atletico Madrid in the summer of 2009, admits he is flattered by Bayern’s interest and would jump at the chance to join the German champions.
“It’s hard for me to say how serious the reported interest is at the moment,” Heitinga told Voetbal International.
“I know that Bayern haven’t approached Everton yet and they haven’t contacted me either.
“I have to admit that I feel flattered that I’m being linked with a big club such as Bayern Munichthough.
“I’d definitely be interested in joining them. They play Champions League football and I’m still eligible to play in the competition, since we don’t play European football with Everton.” (Sky Sports)
I am not sure David Moyes is going to be very happy with these statements. If Bayern Munich are really interested in the Dutch international then presumably they will make an offer and then perhaps the time would be right to unsubtly state your intent, to do so at this stage smacks of desperation and the Everton boss will not take that very well at all.
The former Atletico Madrid man has done well at Goodison Park and may well want to use the Merseyside club as a stepping stone but does he really have to be so obvious about it? It is fairly obvious that he would be interested in a move to last season’s Champions League finalists so he doesn’t really need to announce that fact to the press.
The timing of this could probably not have been worse. The Toffees have had a very poor start to the season and there is the small matter of a Merseyside derby on Sunday.
