The agent of former Italian keeper Francesco Toldo is trying to engineer a move to the Premiership, using Everton as potential bait to hook other clubs on the end of his line.
Claudio Pasqualin claims his client would welcome a move to Everton, although no contact has yet been made, but that they would face stiff opposition for his signature – should they ever be interested, that is.
“Francesco is a Bosman in the summer and there are offers in for him now,” Pasqualin told skysports.com. “Palermo and Benfica in Portugal have made offers for Francesco.
“In the market in England I know Everton like Francesco and their manager is clever in that he has bought players from Italy before so he knows all about Francesco.
“If he receives a good offer Francesco would welcome a move to England and I think Everton would be a good solution for Francesco.
“There is also the possibility that Milan could sign him as back-up to Dida.”
