Everton close in on Eto’o deal

first_imgEverton are closing in on a deal for veteran Cameroon striker Samuel Eto’o. However, talks have re-started over a potential two-year deal as manager Roberto Martinez looks to add more firepower to his side with Arouna Kone, back-up to main striker Romelu Lukaku, still to return from a knee injury sustained in October. Eto’o scored nine times in 21 Barclays Premier League games for the Blues last season. He would bring plenty of experience at the highest level, having won the Champions League twice with Barcelona and again with Inter. Everton have drawn their opening two league games 2-2. Press Association Sport understands the Toffees are in advanced talks with the 33-year-old, who became a free agent at the end of last season after he was released by Chelsea. Everton held detailed negotiations with the former Barcelona and Inter Milan forward last week but after those initial discussions the chances of a move to Goodison Park appeared to cool. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
