Everton & Palace in PL war to sign 24-goal striker, £6.7m will get deal done

According to reports from Voetball International, four Premier League clubs are targeting FC Utrecht striker Sebastien Haller for a summer transfer.

The 22-year-old frontman has bagged 35 goals in 57 outings for the Eredivisie outfit since signing from Auxerre in summer 2014, including 24 strikes across all competitions last season.

And that appears to have attracted a number of Premier League clubs to the former France U21’s signature, with Voetball International reporting on a developing transfer battle between Everton, Crystal Palace, Swansea City and Sunderland.

And the Dutch international further claim that Utrecht value their star striker at just shy of £6.7million – a drop in the ocean for the aforementioned quartet considering the enormous television revenue now available to Premier League clubs.

However, a number of French sides are also targeting Haller according to France Football, likely due to the 6 foot 2 striker’s impressive record for France at youth international level.

Haller boasts 21 goals in 45 appearances between the U16 and U21 age groups, but is yet to earn a senior call-up.
