Everton set to move for Swansea City midfielder Ki Sung-yueng

Everton are reportedly set to launch a bid to sign Swansea City midfielder, Ki Sung-yeung, upon the expiration of his contract this summer with the Welsh Premier League side.

Ki, a player who has been with Swansea for eight years, has amassed 99 national team appearances with South Korea whilst also scoring 15 goals and registering ten assists in his time with the club.

Everton will be able to sign Ki on a free transfer, and the South Korean will be expected to demand a sizeable weekly salary for moving north to Merseyside.

With the Toffees reportedly set to part ways with Sam Allardyce at the end of the current campaign, a new manager, potentially Marco Silva if previous interest is re-ignited, could be set to deploy Ki as either a holding midfielder or in a more attacking position as a number ten during the 2018/19 campaign.

Therefore the signing of the South Korean will unquestionably be appealing to an Everton hierarchy who, with the partnership of owner Farhad Moshiri and Director of Football Steve Walsh, have got a number of key transfer decisions wrong in their tenure to date, including Sandro Ramirez, Davy Klaassen and Michael Keane – all of whom have considerably underperformed in the current campaign.

The signing of Ki on a free transfer would represent excellent value to Everton, though it is unlikely they will be the only party interested in his services, with the likes of AC Milan and West Ham also marked as suitors of interest.
