Crysencio Summerville has opened up on rumours linking him with a move to Everton.

The Dutchman spoke to Voetbal International ahead of the Netherlands’ final group stage match of the U21 Euro tournament, admitting that he ‘doesn’t want to be involved’ in this summer’s transfer talk.

Summerville joined Leeds United from Feyenoord for £1.3 million three years ago and had mainly featured for the youth sides before enjoying his breakthrough campaign last season.

The winger netted four goals in the Premier League but was unable to prevent them from being relegated to the Championship.

The Telegraph recently revealed that Everton were eager to sign Summerville, while another report claimed that they were considering a £44m swoop for the winger and his teammate, Wilfried Gnonto.

“I would not know yet whether I’ll play for Leeds next season,” Summerville said.

“I also hear and read all kinds of things, but I do not want to be involved in that now.

“I have therefore asked my agent to keep all interest away from me for the time being. The first target is the Dutch U21s. I want to win. I’m hungry.”

Unfortunately, the U21s were knocked out of the Euros on Tuesday as they were held to a third consecutive draw by Georgia.

Summerville’s return to Elland Road will now allow him to consider his options, with Newcastle United also recently linked with the 21-year-old.

Everton can sign a better Leeds United attacker than Crysencio Summerville

Everton have been linked with a number of Leeds United players in recent weeks and they are definitely right in bolstering their squad with the best of the relegated bunch.

While Summerville is a very talented player, it seems unlikely that the Toffees could afford both the Dutchman and Gnonto.

The Italian is reportedly available for as little as £13 million this summer, which seems like a significant bargain given his potential.

If Sean Dyche’s side are to make a move for one of them, then Gnonto seems the more sensible option.
