Everton have made an offer worth €25-26 million for Udinese striker Beto, but the Italian side could push towards a fee closer to his €35 million release clause.

Fabrizio Romano confirmed Everton’s interest in Udinese striker Beto, having lodged their first offer worth €25-26 million. The Italian side may not accept the proposal as they could ask for more as the striker has a €35 million release clause in his contract.

Everton are eager to finish the transfer window strongly and are looking at different options in the market. The season’s first two games resulted in defeats but made it abundantly clear that the Toffees need more firepower up front.

As Dominic Calvert-Lewin looked to get back fit, he picked up a cheekbone problem against Aston Villa. Sean Dyche will hope the issue is not severe enough to keep him out for prolonged periods and will want to have him back soon.

In any case, Everton will need a new striker to improve their fortunes in front of the goal. They have thoroughly struggled in that aspect and are looking at a few options in the market. The Toffees appear to have set their sights on Udinese star Beto, but his valuation could cause problems.

The Serie A striker has a €35 million release clause in his contract, and while Udinese are open to a sale, they would want closer to that amount. As per Fabrizio Romano, Everton have lodged a bid worth €25-26 million, but they might turn it down.

Everton are also aware of rival interest in Beto, with Tottenham and Fulham keen on the striker. Many Premier League sides could make a late dash in the window for forwards, and the €35 million Serie A striker could become an option for many.

Everton must accelerate their pursuit of Beto if they wish to sign the striker. The complicated part is raising the funds for such a transaction. The Toffees may ponder making an improved bid if Udinese rejects their current proposal.

The more significant issue is the arrival of rivals, and if they manage to convince Beto of a good role in their side, Everton may end up losing out. Hence, acting swiftly and getting an agreement ahead of a crucial phase of the transfer window is imperative.
