Christian Atsu

English side Everton have targeted Porto’s Ghanaian winger Christian Atsu as their first signing of the summer transfer window, reports suggest.

21-year-old Atsu has impressed for Porto in his first season for the club, having been sent out on loan to Rio Ave last campaign.

The quicksilver wide man garnered the attention of Tottenham Hotspur during the summer, but Portuguese newspaper Abola suggest that Everton are preparing a bid.

David Moyes’ side have a formal bid for Atsu currently under consideration at the club, with a fee of €10 million enough to meet his release clause and pave the way for a move to Goodison Park.

The Ghana international can offer David Moyes the versatility he looks for in so many of his attacking outlets, with Atsu having already played in a number of attacking positions during his time in Portugal.

Upon his return to the Estadio do Dragao last summer, Atsu has gone on to make 12 appearances for Porto, who currently sit two points off league leaders Benfica.

    It looks good to me. It would give him the needed exposure and experience. Who knows, he might join Danny Welbeck and Jeffrey Schlupp one day.

  2. Gash says:

    This guy only play 15mins maximum for porto.

  3. Jonjo DORMENYO says:

    I wish he will rather jump on to a THFC bid

  4. TRuMPET says:

    @Gash Some ppl never understand football but always want to comment. He plays 15 mins so what?! I always say if Chicharito was a Ghanaian, ppl would hav concluded that SAF does not like him so he should move on. What do u think his role is at Porto? Some ppl simply no nothin!!!

  5. Dr Who says:

    A step in the right direction for Everton.

  6. abs says:

    right guys. 15 mins at Porto is better than 120 mins in some Arab league. Portugal is one of the best leagues in Europe
