Everton show PL intentions with reported swoop for top-flight title-winner
Everton have delivered their supporters a massive hint over where their ambitions lie in the Premier League lie after they were reportedly named in the pursuit of Swansea City midfielder Ki Sung-yeung.
The South Korean international has been a force for the Swans in the centre of the park throughout the campaign but in truth, he is exactly the kind of bland and uninspiring signing the club have been making for many years.
Under Farhad Moshiri’s reign over the Goodison Park outfit, the Merseysiders were expected to kick on, but the reality is that they are no further on from the mediocrity and defensive nature that fans were witnessing under David Moyes’ consistent yet dour tenure.
The 29-year-old’s potential arrival is already failing to excite the throngs of Everton fans on social media and who can blame them?
They already have a wealth of defensive midfielders within the ranks – you could even accuse the entire midfield of being defensive – so to add another into the mix would signal that they are heading for another season like this.

The Blues are currently eighth in the league which considering their plight at the beginning of the season is a reasonable position to find themselves in.
But now that they have Moshiri’s billions, they have to breakaway from their comfort zone and tendency to pursue mediocre players by making it a transfer window to remember not forget.
