‘Available’: Fabrizio Romano now says Beto, who Everton wanted in January could be signed for £30m this summer

Why Chelsea FINALLY Turned A Corner.

The price tag for Portuguese forward Beto has been revealed, with the 25-year-old linked with a move away from Udinese this summer.

Indeed, transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has said that the striker is ‘available’ in the summer for £30m, though confirmed that the Serie A club had yet to receive a huge bid.

Reported via his Twitter account, Romano also stated that Napoli are interested in the 25-year-old, potentially as a replacement for Victor Osimhen, who has been linked with a move to Manchester United.

Everton looked to sign Beto in the January transfer window, though ended the month empty handed, despite the £45m departure of Anthony Gordon to Newcastle United.

Romano does not indicate whether or not Everton are likely to reignite their interest, though any approach would likely depend on the Blues securing Premier League football.

Everton need consistent players like Beto if next season is to avoid becoming a third consecutive relegation battle

Everton desperately need to recruit at least one centre-forward this summer and have been light upfront all season.

With just 33 goals in 37 games, the Blues are one of the lowest goalscorers in the division this season, with only Wolves and Southampton scoring less.

However, should the Toffees decide to pursue Beto once more, it remains to be seen if the large transfer fee would price Everton out of a move for the forward.

A return of 10 goals in 31 Serie A games for Udinese, also contributing one assist, Beto has had an impressive campaign, and could be an ideal signing for Sean Dyche’s side.

Meanwhile, maintaining Premier League status will be Everton’s priority this week with a huge fixture at Goodison Park on Sunday as the Blues host Bournemouth.
