Martinez confirms club missed out on 2 signings
Everton manager Roberto Martinez has confirmed that the club missed out on 2 signings in the summer as they look to pick up some outstanding talent from South America.
The cub did get the man they wanted in Leandro Rodriguez, but also missed out on 2 other young Uruguayan talents who went to Holland and Spain.
“We follow South American football from a distance and try to filter a lot of games, and Leandro was one of three promising Uruguayan youngsters. One went to PSV, Leandro came to us and another went to Spain. Those were the three talents we were following but it was the striker we wanted.”
