Everton make move for Barcelona sensation

Everton are once again in transfer talks with Barcelona, with young midfielder Sergi Roberto the man the Toffees now want, according to reports from The Mirror.

The Merseysiders have been closely linked with the La Liga giants on a few occasions over the course of the past couple of years, with Gerard Deulofeu’s loan deal the major transaction between the two clubs.

And now Martinez has his eye on another Catalan ace in the shape of Roberto, who is free to leave the Nou Camp this summer.

The 23-year-old has reportedly been told that he is allowed to find another club after making just 12 appearances for Barca – seven in league action – this term, which has prompted Everton to open talks with the Spaniards.

Roberto is a versatile central midfielder who is comfortable performing in both attacking and defensive systems and has long been dubbed a star for the future.

Stoke attempted to sign him in January.
