Everton fans doubt deal for David Lopez

According to Mundo Deportivo, Everton want to sign Espanyol captain David Lopez in this summer’s transfer window.

The Toffees were first credited with an interest in Lopez in January, while Newcastle United are also believed to be admirers of the 28-year-old.

It is being reported that Everton are ready to reignite their interest this summer, with Lopez high on Marco Silva’s list of priorities ahead of the 2018-19 campaign.

The Spaniard is contracted to his Catalan club until the end of the 2019-2020 campaign, and he was in impressive form last season – scoring once in 43 appearances in all competitions.

The fact that Lopez, who is valued at £7.2m by Transfermarkt, can play in both defence and midfield, meanwhile, makes him an attractive proposition for Everton.

The Merseyside club’s supporters, however, are not confident that their team has what it takes to complete a deal for Lopez this summer.
