Everton fans think they have dodged a bullet with the latest transfer news, as the Italian press claim William Carvalho has snubbed his English suitors to join Inter Milan.
Multiple Premier League teams have been eyeing up summer swoop for Carvalho, and Marco Silva’s previous relationship with the giant midfielder had Everton as one of the front-runners.
According to Italian reports though, the towering defensive midfielder will join Inter Milan this summer.
The 26 year-old is one of a number of Sporting CP players expected to be on the move for a bargain price this summer, as several first team stars want to terminate their contracts after an attack at their training ground.
It seems like Everton won’t be the ones to land Carvalho though, and fans think they may just have dodged a bullet.
The 44–cap Portuguese international certainly knows how to break up play and launch his teams forward, but his languid style draws plenty of criticism.
Fans are all saying the same thing about the reports – that the last thing they need is another slow midfielder anyway.

Good. Not mobile or dynamic enough for the Premier League. Much more suited to Italian football.
