Transfer Latest: Some Italian Connections

Xherdan Shaqiri

Earlier in the summer there were rumblings that Xherdan Shaqiri was being considered for a move to the Blues. The Swiss central midfielder who is under contract with Inter Milan has once again been brought up after Schalke’s interest in him has ended. It was believed that Schalke was his preferred destination.

Do I want it to happen:60% 

Shaqiri would bring more creativity to the middle of the pitch and his age (23) would fit well into the continued building of our team.

Sebastian De Maio

De Maio brings experience along with some lingering injury worries. 
About the Author:

I am a testament to the fact that Evertonians are born. My first matches were spent sitting on one of the crush bars in the Gladwys Street end watching the Holy Trinity weaving their magic on their way to the league championship in 1970. After moving to Canada it was hard to stay connected but the popularity of the game has increased and the internet now allows me to see every game live and keep up with all things Everton.
