Everton propose swap deal in bid to land World Cup star

  Everton propose swap deal in bid to land World Cup star Everton have reportedly lodged a bid to sign Domagoj Vida from Beskitas that would see Davy Klassen move in the opposite direction. According to reports from AMK Spor, as cited on Sport Witness, the Toffees are keen to land the Croatian defender this summer. The Turkish side are also keen to sign Klaassen, who has failed to impress since his move to the Premier League. It was previously reported that Besiktas were hoping to land the Dutch midfielder on loan, but this could open the opportunity for them to sign him on a permanent deal. There have been doubts over Klaassen’s long-term future at Goodison Park for some time and Marco Silva could look to sell this summer as he puts his own stamp on the Toffees squad. Everton have been linked with moves for Vida throughout the World Cup, with the 29-year-old putting in a number of impressive performances to help Croatia top Group D. There is also thought to be interest from Leicester, who are keen to sign Vida this summer.
