Southampton striker Graziano Pelle is in talks with both Everton and Stoke, according to his agent.
The Italian is part of Italy’s Euro 2016 squad, but is about to enter the last year of his contract without a new deal signed. Reports suggest that Southampton will look to sell Pelle if he doesn’t commit to a new contract, in order to maximise the fee they receive.
Pelle’s agent has now revealed that he is in talks with both Everton and Stoke, but also that a move to China is on the cards.
However, reported links to Italian champions Juventus have been refuted.
“With Juventus at the moment there is nothing,” Romualdo Corvino told Italian radio station SportItalia.
“However, there has been contact with Everton, Stoke City and China.”
Pelle has scored 23 Premier League goals in two seasons at Southampton, but turns 31 in July.
Everton are the ultimate blank canvas and it looks like Ronald Koeman is ready to pick up his paintbrush…
It looks very likely that a deal will be done after Ronald Koeman agreed a contract with Everton.
