According to reports, Everton upped their bid for Beto and now match Udinese’s value of the striker. This weekend’s medical is scheduled before the official transfer paperwork for €30 million is signed.

Sky Sports News in the UK reported today that Kevin Thelwell has confirmed that an agreement has now been reached between the two clubs, following reports from Fabrizio Romano and Sky Italia on Friday that the Blues held new negotiations in Portugal.

Beto stayed on the Blues’ list despite costing more than their budget, despite their last-ditch effort to sign him on January’s transfer deadline day.

Romano and Alan Myers claimed that the Blues had held talks with Udinese, but Gianluca DiMarzio of Sky Italia later stated that it had been turned down.

The 25-year-old’s €35 million release clause has reportedly expired, and it’s been suggested that his club would take a lower down payment. The ultimate price reached their valuation, which is roughly that much.

Since joining Udinese from Portimonense SC in Portugal in 2021, Beto has played 65 times and scored 22 goals.

Everton is looking for a center-forward to fill Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s spot. The club has been in talks with Southampton about acquiring Ché Adams, the Scottish international, but no agreement has been reached.

Leeds Prepare Another Gnonto Bid

Wilfried Gnonto is still a top target, and the winger hopes to join Everton to play for Italy in the European Championships next summer.

We know that the Toffees wants to make one more this week, one that is closer to the £30 million threshold after the one of £25 million (£20 million plus 5 million) was turned down.

Over the next few days, crucial negotiations between Everton and Leeds are scheduled. Gnonto, whose interest is in Everton, has already agreed in principle after holding talks with the Merseyside club at Finch Farm with the help of his agent, Claudio Vigorelli.

To force a transfer away from Elland Road out of Leeds’ relegation, Gnonto has been refusing to pay for the club.

Most recently, he did not make the matchday squad for Leeds’ 1-1 draw with West Brom on Friday night.

Leeds has been emphatic that he is not for sale, but we need to see if this will cause them to change their minds. And it is closer to the £30 million they had placed on the teen.
