Rafa Benítez wants the Colombian to replace James Rodríguez at Everton


Everton tracks Colombian international as Rodríguez's replacement at Benítez's request

Everton desperately continues their search for a creative outlet to add to Rafa Benítez’s team at Goodison Park this summer before the transfer window closes, and they may have found their man at FC Porto’s Luis Díaz.

Diaz, 24, was recently linked to Chelsea and Tottenham’s interest previously in the window, but Colombian journalist Pipe Sierra took to social media earlier today to confirm that Benitez is on track to secure his services.

While tweeting from his personal account, Sierra – who works for the Colombian media WinSportsTV and W Radio Colombia – stated that Díaz was intrigued by the package offered by Everton, but has not yet made a decision about its future and has not ruled out. stay in Porto or receive offers from other clubs that are in the Champions League.

Díaz made his mark this summer when he played for Colombia in the Copa América, finishing the tournament as the joint top scorer with 4 goals alongside Lionel Messi, as Colombia finished third after beating Peru 3-2 in the consolation match.

Everton must replace James Rodríguez

No one expects Everton to retain James Rodriguez or the Colombian international to rehabbing his chances with Benitez this season, with the creative midfielder getting permission to speak to other clubs to fabricate a move away from Goodison Park.

And it was discussed earlier today by SkySports that Rodríguez could return to Estádio do Dragão in a loan that could be used as a compensation weight in any deal Diaz can reach before the transfer deadline in the next few weeks.

Everton’s need to find a creative midfielder to fill the long-awaited void left by Rodríguez cannot be underestimated.

At present, the Toffees cannot count on a single chief creator that Benítez can turn to other than the vagabond Rodriguez. Although Everton have started well on the roster in the early gates of the 2021-22 Premier League campaign by scoring 5 combined goals against Southampton and Leeds United, that goal rate is not expected to hold steady without someone tasked with pull the ropes behind Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison.
