EVERTON SEEK 'YES' OFF YAYA

12/06/2007

 

EVERTON boss David Moyes is locked in a battle to sign Arsenal defender Kolo Toure's kid brother Yaya.

 

Barcelona, Inter Milan and Roma also want midfielder Yaya, who has been put for sale for £8million by Monaco.

 

Toure's agent Dimitri Seluk said: "It is very possible that the sale will happen soon. It's only a question of time and money.

 

Barca want to talk but Monaco but have received other offers."

 

Yaya Touré is a center midfielder who stands out because of his physical abilities. Very capable in holding and protecting the ball, Yaya excels in a variety of passes, including long, short and direct. In difficult situations, when his team is under pressure, he has the ability to make forward runs, thus he has been recognized as a box-to-box player.

 

Would be a bit of a coup if this one came off - Hats of if this transfer comes off.

Yeah...this is on BBC Gossip column too:

Everton manager David Moyes is challenging Barcelona, Inter Milan and Roma for the signature of Kolo Toure's £8m-rated brother Yaya, who plays in midfield for Monaco (Mirror).

 

Would be very good if true...around £8m though, do we really have that cash? Better (and cheaper) than Fernandes?????

How do you know we can't afford £4M to buy Jaks? Becasue some newspaper article says so?

 

I would say none of use really know who Moyes is really chasing and what his budget is - just look at the amount of rumours.

 

My guess is there is around £10M to £15M available plus anything raised by sales of the likes of Beattie etc.

My point was that it is just a rumour, and that ironically was printed in the same paper that claimed yesterday that DM didn't have the funds for Jagielka!!

 

Like everyone else I have no real idea how much is available

Im a season ticket holder mate so I've more than likely seem more of Everton than you. im not putting the team down mate just telling the truth, he'll go to Barca or Milan over us every time. He has no affinity with Everton so he won't feel the sentimental pull to join us. What has Arteta won? The Scottish League at best I reckon.

I have thought about it and I've watched it happen. We miss out the midfield far too much because of players like Hibbert and Stubbs. Most of the time the midfield only get the ball because theyve had to battle for it, not because its been passed to them.

ok so say we do hoof the ball from time to time whats wrong with that? yes i to wud lik to see a lot more of the midfeild involved but yano am happy with our squad and what they have achevied. so how we wud stop the problem of doing this o ye by trying to bring in players lik him who makes himself availble to recive the pass. am i right in sayin we fought off competition from juve wen we signed yobo? and he hadnt been to Goodison before so yano

122, I lik wat u r going on about. U r talking sense. xcept wat u r saying is without sense, direction or thought. I personally think we as a team lack a certain je ne sais quois, we are without a doubt a decent footballing side, what we lack is the killer touch.

 

So many times in the last season we had chances to bury teams and we lacked that cutting edge. Don't fool yourself into thinking we will attract players who are "Charlie big spuds".

 

U no wat I mean.

imo we do the hoofing up the park when under pressure, when we arent under pressure we normally play a simple ball, usually trying to find micky!

 

but im more than happy with this, a couple of years ago when yobo was trying to "play football" we were all thinking why the fuck didnt he just hoof the ball up the park.

 

i thought we were a good footballing side last season

in relation to the midfield arguement

 

watch brazil, milan...a good team and their midfield...the top 4...what do u see, the ball goes from defence to midfield to attack...genereally.... they do that by having skilled midfielders who make themselves available for a pass, find the space, get into it and use the ball well. all we have is arteta in that mould...no-one else can do it...is our midfield good enough? individually it had good qualities, as a team, despite what many u think, it isn't... them idfield we have are not INTELLIGENT enough and DO NOT WORK hard enough for each other

 

that's why we need investment, our defence = fine...strikeforce = fine given the service ... we jsut need creativity and intelligence

 

 

and so on topic...yaya toure (a player ive seen several time may be a great purchase, same as fernandes, but the main thing is we need to invest and train this midfield of ours for europe, otherwise we won't cope

 

over and outtie

^^^ I definitely agree with the midfield. For us to do well in Europe our midfield is going to be the key. We already have a great core to work with we just need to add on. Hopefully we will be able to get a central midfielder and a winger this summer. Both would be very much needed for Europe.

I agree we do desparately need more composure in the middle (manny for another 12 months + a winger) but it's no use if hibbo and naysmith boot it over them. I really don't think our defence is fine, our defensive record was 5th best in the league but thats because we make our midfield play in a defensive role for large periods of the game. As mentioned our fullbacks and stubbs nearly always hit the long ball regardless of pressure. Moyes obviously is happy for this to happen or he would put a stop to it. Carsley and Neville are also poor in possession but at least sometimes play intelligent passes.

Nothing to do with us but what about this for a quote from Toure's agent about the financial state of Man City:

 

"Everything has changed with City, because they talk a lot but then afterwards they don't appear to be a rich club but rather a bankrupt one."

 

Maybe bitter because they won't pay his wage demands but I like to think they are heading towards the red.
