Everton have reportedly lodged a bid for West Ham United striker target Beto as the clock ticks down on deadline day.
That’s according to a report from TuttoMercatoWeb who claim that Everton have made a €25 million (£22 million) offer for the Udinese hitman.
The Hammers desperately need to sign a striker before tonight’s 11pm deadline. But it seems as though Beto won’t be heading to East London.
That’s because Everton have made a concrete move for the Portuguese ace…
Everton make Beto bid on deadline day
TuttoMercatoWeb reckon that the Toffees have launched a last-minute £22 million bid for the 25-year-old Udinese ace.
Udinese have neither accepted nor rejected the bid yet. However, considering the financial state of Italian football, it would be no surprise to see the giant striker head to Goodison Park.
Cult of Calcio describe him as a’superb’ striker.
And I really feel as though Moyes should have taken a punt on Beto.
The 25-year-old target man has bagged 18 goals in 50 games for Udinese (Transfermarkt).
Given his height, it’s obvious that Beto is very strong in the air but he has a decent first touch as well and is a very good finisher.
The Portuguese striker is exceptional when playing with his back to goal and would provide the perfect competition and cover for Gianluca Scamacca, Danny Ings and Michail Antonio.
It’s a moot point now though, with Everton having made a deadline day move to sign Beto.
