Everton prepared to make £13 million bid for Benfica star

Everton are reportedly keen to sign Benfica star Florentino Luis in the summer transfer window (h/t Maisfutebol).

The Toffees attempted to seal a move for the 24-year-old by making a £25 million bid in January but their offer was rejected

The Premier League outfit will revive their interest in the defensive midfielder with a £13m bid this summer.

His current contract includes a £102m release clause, but Everton’s financial troubles mean they need to negotiate a lower fee.

The Merseyside giants need midfield reinforcements as they aim to make further progress under manager Sean Dyche next term. 

Amadou Onana has been linked with a move away from Goodison Park, while Idrissa Gana Gueye is unreliable due to his injury issues. 

Luis could be an excellent acquisition for them. He is talented and young and has proven his abilities in Portugal

He has played a key role in helping Benfica finish second this season, featuring in 30 Primeira Liga games and averaging 2.6 tackles, 1.6 interceptions and 4.1 ball recoveries.
