Sources have reported that Everton are monitoring Largie Ramazani from Spanish club UD Almeria. He is being named as their priority target this summer.
Everton have reportedly enquired about Ramazani and Almeria are looking for a transfer fee of around £35 million to let the highly-rated winger go. Aston Villa are another Premier League club rumoured to be interested in signing him.
The 22-year-old is being presented as the solution to Everton’s horrible goal-scoring record in this season’s Premier League. They have only managed to score 35 goals in their whole 2022/23 league campaign.
Ramazani could bring with him an injection of pace into the team that desperately needs some inspiration after having barely survived yet another relegation battle.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s constant injury problems have seen Everton struggle to provide any real goal threat to any of their rivals on the pitch. The Toffees are also interested in bringing in another striker for this reason alongside a winger who provides a goal-scoring threat.
Ramazani has already had the exposure of playing for a Premier League club as he joined Manchester United’s under-18 side in 2018 and made his debut for the club in the same year in the Europa League. He was then released and joined UD Almeria in search of game time.
He has impressed at Almeria noticeably with his lethal pace and goal-scoring threat off the wing. He also provides a creative edge and has the potential to be the all-round modern-day winger.
The Belgian has scored 13 times for Almeria in over 50 appearances for the club.
Sean Dyche was brought in primarily to fight off the threat of relegation this season but also with the future in mind. The Englishman had famously transformed Burnley into a top-10 side in his time at the club thanks to his tactical competence which goes under the radar.
Dyche is trying to change the culture at Everton to a more electric style of play and Ramazani could be the catalyst as the new boss’ first signing at the club. If he were to secure other rumoured targets such as Tammy Abraham, it would be interesting to see what Dyche can do with a club currently in their worst-ever patch in the English top-flight.
