Roberto Soldado could be the first player to arrive under the new regime at Goodison Park.
Everton look like they want to move forward as quickly as possible following the departure of David Moyes, by bringing in £10million-rated Valencia striker Roberto Soldado – as reported on the Toffees website.
With a debt crisis continuing to rage on at the Spanish club, the former La Liga champions may be forced to sell some of their prized assets for cheaper than they would have liked.
Soldado is valued at £22million by football website transfermarkt.com but with the increasing need for money at the club it is likely that Everton could tempt Los Che into a deal closer to £10million.
The 27-year-old forward would be something of a steal at that price as he has helped guide Valencia to fifth in the table this season with 21 goals in 32 matches.
There are some issues being brought up that whoever the new man is to take over from Moyes as boss may not want the Spaniard, but with the scoring credentials of Soldado it is difficult to believe any manager wouldn’t welcome him at Goodison Park.
Valencia signed the striker from Getafe in 2010 for £8.8million, but the Spain international’s value has shot through the roof since then after scoring 83 goals in three seasons at the Estadio Mestalla.
With rumours circulating that Moyes will take current Everton favourites Leighton Baines, Marouane Fellaini and Phil Jagielka with him to Old Trafford, the arrival of Soldado would soften the blow for Toffees fans who are experiencing significant changes at their club.
