Everton interested in PSV’s director of football, fans react

Everton are reportedly considering a slight structural change at the club.

According to The Mirror, the Merseyside outfit are in talks with PSV Eindhoven’s director of football Marcel Brands.

Steve Walsh was appointed to carry out that role at Goodison Park in July 2016.

The report claims that if Brands does come on board, he will work alongside Walsh and provide a ‘global dimension’ to the club\s recruitment policy.

The 54-year-old has been working at PSV since 2010 and has been responsible for bringing in around £200m in transfer revenue.

Prior to joining the Eredivisie leaders, Brands worked as director of football at AZ Alkmaar, where he helped bring in Louis van Gaal as manager.

The former Manchester United boss spent four years at the club between 2005 and 2009, and won the league title in that time.

Everton have not been shy in the transfer market having spent more than £100m players last summer.

In this window, the club have recruited Cenk Tosun from Besiktas and Arsenal star Theo Walcott, but they are yet to address the problems at left-back.

Following news of Everton’s reported interest in Brands, fans have had their say on Twitter.
