Top transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has provided a key transfer update to Everton fans about one of their players who seem to be edging closer to a move away from the club. The winger’s future has sparked huge speculations in recent weeks and with the January transfer window closing on Monday evening, the rush to push him away from the club has been a topic of huge importance.
According to Romano, all personal terms have been agreed and the only thing left is for the two clubs to arrive at a fee that would please both parties. The transfer specialist recently posted on his personal account on Twitter to confirm the news. While it will remain a shame to see Bernard leave Everton in this fashion, and to an almost unknown club, especially for a player of his potential, Everton would love to get the deal over the line as soon as possible because it would fetch them massive profit given that they signed the player on a free transfer.
The 28-year-old has featured in just 2 starts under manager Carlo Ancelotti so far this season that just outlines the fact that Bernard is not a first-team player at the club and continues to slide down the pecking order under the Italian boss.
Another reason Everton would more than want to finalize the sale is that they pay the player £120,000 per week, and for a player who rarely plays, that’s quite a lot.
