According to Gott, Ramsey and Bale both want transfers due to ongoing problems at Juventus and Real Madrid respectively. As a result, Everton hope to benefit from the player’s situations.
Everton Plotting Bids for Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey
Out of Favour Bale
A range of injuries restricted Bale’s progress in Madrid. But, Zidane also favours younger prospects like
12 games at Madrid this season.
Bale was linked with Manchester United and his old club Tottenham Hotspur in January. Then, his failed move to Jiangsu Suning in China last summer only heightened tensions between him and Zidane.
Lack of Game Time for Ramsey
Ramsey reportedly wants more game time after starting just nine Serie A games at Juventus this season.
The 29-year-old struggled to force his way into the starting line up at the Allianz Stadium following his free transfer from Arsenal last summer.
Injuries played a part in Ramsey’s omission. But, Maurizio Sarri also favours Blaise Matuidi,
Juventus would be willing to let Ramsey leave for a reasonable offer. The Welsh international seems surplus to requirements in Turin.
Everton and their Growing Ambition – Bale and Ramsey?
The Toffees’ link to players like Bale and Ramsey highlights the club’s ambition for the future.
Owner Farhad Moshiri will back the transfers in an attempt to improve the current squad. Moshiri hopes to lift the club from the fringes of European football to the top four in the Premier League.
If Everton sign Bale and Ramsey, it could be costly. Both players are rumoured to be on around £350,000 per week.
The transfers would make a huge statement about the short term aspirations of the club and may attract further high-profile players to Goodison Park.
However, Everton may face competition from their Premier League rivals. Manchester United are rumoured to be monitoring Bale’s future at Madrid.
Seeing Bale and Ramsey link up with Richarlison, Moise Kean and Bernard will be an exciting prospect. The Toffees could be a force to be reckoned with if they successfully sign the Welsh duo.
