David Moyes is taking Seattle Sounders ace Steve Zakuani on trial at the club as he looks to add to his squad.
The MLS season is over and Everton are trying to follow up their success in landing Landon Donavan last season but getting another bargain on board this time around.
The 22-year-old former Arsenal player is set for a training stint with the club after finishing his season with Seattle and David Moyes will take it from there.
“As for my off season plans, I plan to spend a few days in London visiting old friends and family before going up to Liverpool to train with Everton for a few days.” (Seattle Sounders Official Website)
Though the move is yet to be confirmed by Everton, Zakuani himself has let the cat out of the bag on his own club’s website.
The Congolese international is a right footed winger who mostly plays on the left for his club, and his signing could well be dependent on the future of South Africa star Steven Pienaar.
Pienaar has stalled on the signing a new contract all season, and Everton boss David Moyes could elect to cash in should any club come calling in January.
Tottenham, Arsenal, Chelsea and even arch rivals Liverpool have all been linked with him, but Moyes has moved quickly to bring a former Arsenal trainee to the club.
If he is successful on his trial, he will bring immense speed and a catalogue of tricks to the Everton flanks, and the slow-starting Toffees could well benefit in the second half of the season.
