Everton have reportedly put in a bid for Zenit St Petersburg midfielder Axel Witsel which will break our record transfer spend if he signs.
Reports have emerged from Belgium which suggest Everton have bid £30m for the Belgian playmaker and seem to have come from his dad.
Well, it wouldn’t be a Belgian player if his dad wasn’t speaking to the press about a move, would it?
27 year old Witsel has been hot property ever since bursting onto the scene with Standard Liege as a teenager, and a move for a player of his calibre will signal the intent of the new era at Goodison Park.
