As reported by Sky Sports, Everton are interested in signing Swansea City midfielder Ki Sung-yueng this summer.
After a disappointing season in the English Premier League, Everton are on the hunt for talent who can help them perform more consistently next term and are expected to have a busy transfer window.
One player on their radar is Swansea City man Ki Sung-yueng, whose contract at the Welsh club expires at the end of the season.
Sky Sports reckon that the Toffees are interested in signing him up, but face competition from the likes of AC Milan and other unknown English Premier League sides.
Is he the kind of player they should be moving for?
There’s no doubting Sung-yueng is a competent English Premier League midfielder and perhaps, on a free transfer, there’s an argument that he could provide midfield depth at Goodison Park next season.
He has excellent experience of British football having spent a successful spell at Celtic before making over 150 Premier League appearances with Swansea City and Sunderland. With 88 caps for his native South Korea too, he has performed at a high level for a long time.
However, despite that experience and possessing good technical ability, he wouldn’t be an upgrade in the Everton first team and they need to be bringing players to the club that can take them to the next level now they have excellent resources to sign players.
It’s a signing that wouldn’t make much sense and would likely underwhelm supporters who are looking for more this summer.
