Everton are reportedly in the hunt to sign Boca Juniors left-back Frank Fabra and his agent has confirmed that there is interest in him ahead of the summer transfer window.
José Constanzo has offered an in-depth update on Fabra, 27, revealing that the Colombia international has a release clause valued at £10.6million and while he is aware of reported interest from Everton, there are yet to be any talks held.
Argentinian radio station El Crack Deportivo claim that the Merseysiders have already made contact with Boca over Fabra as they aim to sign a new left-back in the summer.
It has now been confirmed by Fabra’s agent that Napoli are also interested in the Argentine title-holder and that a move to the Premier League is on the cards.
“We know of a supposed interest from Everton, but we have not met with anybody of the club,” Constanzo told Sport Witness.
“Now we did travel, we were in London, Manchester and Liverpool, taking advantage that the Argentine team played there.”
He added: “Boca will always ask for what the clause says, and that is fifteen million dollars (£10.6m). But they told us that if a logical offer comes for what the player is worth, they are going to sell him.
“I think he’ll end up playing in the Premier League. There are other teams looking for left-backs.”
“So let’s wait for what is the best in money and sportingly and we will decide. Frank wants to play in the Premier. But Napoli can be a possibility too.”
Fabra has made 19 appearances in all competitions for Boca Juniors this season, scoring two goals and supplying three assists.
He won the Argentine Primera Division last season with the South American giants and they are looking set to win it yet again this term with a nine point lead at the top.
Football Insider verdict
Fabra looks like he would be a very good signing for Everton. He has experience of winning titles at a club where pressure is very high and is also a fully fledged international. It seems that the Toffees will not be the sole runners in the bid to sign him in the summer though and a switch to Napoli could also be of interest, especially with them set to play in the Champions League next season and challenge for the Serie A title. Everton will surely have a lot of money to offer though and that surely puts them in good stead.
