EVERTON are one of SIX Premier League clubs on the trail of Abdisalam Ibrahim, the Manchester City starlet dubbed the new Patrick Vieira according to the Daily Star
It’s strange that the Star dub him the new Patrick Viera, we only last month when he was linked he was the new YaYa Toure
Ibrahim, 22, has told new City boss Manuel Pellegrini he wants to quit the club, where he has just one year left on his contract.
Despite coaching staff comparing Ibrahim to their football development executive Vieira and current star Yaya Toure, he has had little chance at the Etihad.
Crystal Palace, Fulham, Hull, Swansea and Sunderland have all expressed an interest in the midfielder who is likely to cost about £1m.
Ibrahim was born in Somalia but moved to Norway aged seven and has represented the country at under-21 level.
In March he was farmed out to Norwegians Stromsgodset and has two games left of his loan spell. And in six years with City, he has made just three appearances.
This is the 3rd time we have been linked to Ibrahim so this could be a goer. Have your say at www.theevertonforum.com
