Everton eye STUNNING deal for former Champions League winner

Everton are interested in a surprise move for Inter Milan star Xherdan Shaqiri, reports The Guardian.

The Toffees are keen on a season-long loan deal for the 23-year-old, with a view to a permanent deal at the end of it. The Nerazzurri are happy to let the Switzerland international leave after he has failed to impress since signing in January. In 15 games for the team he has scored two goals and assisted one other.

After impressing at the World Cup last summer, in which he scored a hat trick in one game, the winger’s career has taken a downwards turn. Unable to get in to the side with Bayern Munich for the first part of last season – despite winning the Champions League with them in 2013 – he moved to the San Siro and has also failed there. A fresh start in the Premier League could be what is needed for him to fulfil his undoubted talent.

Everton have made only two signings so far in the transfer window. Tom Cleverley and Gerard Deulofeu have joined the club, and manager Roberto Martinez has made it clear that he wants to bring more new faces in [BBC] after finishing a disappointing 11th last time round.
