Everton are interested in signing Crystal Palace experienced midfielder Luka Milivojevic this summer. This is according to Greek Journalist Gerasimos Manolidis.

THE FULL STORY

The Serbian international has not played a lot of games since the arrival of Patrick Viera, making only 15 Premier League appearances for the club during the 2021-22 campaign. Under the management of Roy Hodgson, the experienced midfielder made 31 Premier League appearances in the season before. It could be due to the lack of game time, Luka would be happy to move on from Palace. Everton and Fulham are interested in the Palace midfielder according to the reports.

THE MIDFIELD MAESTRO

If you ask Crystal Palace fans about Milivojevic, they will tell you he is all about his passing and tackling. The Serbian International is one of those midfielders who improve every team he plays for. Everton in its current situation after avoiding relegation would love such a midfield maestro. With 180 appearances across five seasons, He is rarely injured during the season. Palace might be open to suggestions as the money would be invested in signing young players. Considering how depleted Everton’s midfield was last season, the veteran would start every game. Despite having limited minutes under Viera, he had a passing accuracy of 86% the highest in Crystal Palace midfield. His timing of a tackle is one of the best in the Premier League. He takes the sting out of the game if you need to.

The reason Everton would be interested in Luka would be because Frank Lampard loves to play counterattacking style of football. The Serbian would thrive in such a midfield. Despite him being into his 30s his eye for a pass into channels for players like Gordon, and Demarai Gray would be deadly for the opposition teams. Everton have also been immature at times losing the ball in important areas of the field. The veteran midfield will bring in the experience and calmness on the field for Everton. All in all, this would be a good deal for all parties involved.
