Valencia chase Everton striker

Valencia are ready to make a move for Everton striker Samuel Eto’o in the January transfer window, according to Mundo Deportivo,.

The Cameroon international only joined the Toffees last summer from Chelsea and his current contract expires in June 2016, although reports in England claim that the 33-year-old was due to be offered a two-year extension at Goodison Park.

However, Valencia are keen to take him to Mestalla, where he would form a lethal strike force alongside Alvaro Negredo and Paco Alcacer, and the player himself may find the temptation of a return to Spain to end his career difficult to turn down.

Eto’o had spells in La Liga with Real Mallorca and Barcelona, winning three League titles, a Copa del Rey, two Champions Leagues and two Supercopa de Espana trophies in his time at the Camp Nou, before moves to Inter Milan and Anzhi Makhachkala.

Los Che have recently been taken over by Singapore businessman Peter Lim and now have the necessary funds to bring in more players as they look to cement a Champions League spot for next season.
