Everton trying to hijack deal for 17 goal international
Everton are trying to jump on the problems of Xherdan Shaqiri’s proposed move to Schalke as the Swiss international faces being frozen out at Inter Milan.
Tuttomercato web is reporting that Everton could try and move ahead in the race as the transfer to the Bundesliga club is stalling.
Everton are looking for a number 10 playmaker and Shaqiri would fit the bill, although they have contacted previous employers to see if he is the right personality for the club.
Roberto Martinez is looking to fill a void behind the striker and also at centre-back as the club looks forward to the new season.
Can Everton sign Shaqiri?
