English Premier League side Everton is reported to be interested in Japan international Shingi Kagawa. The 30-year-old has become surplus to requirements at Borussia Dortmund with the player spending the second half of the season at Turkish outfit Besiktas.
The Toffees have lofty ambitions but are looking to spend on the right players to achieve their ambition of finishing in the top 6 next seasons. Manager Marco Silva wants a creative presence in the midfield that can dribble and make crucial passes in the final third.
Kagawa fits this bill and would cost less than other potential signings although his wage demands is on the high side as it is believed that he earns £5 million a year.
Nevertheless, Everton are one of the few clubs in the top flight that can afford to pay him that sort of wages. West Ham are also interested in the player as Pellegrini looks to offer more support to Lanzini and Felipe Anderson.
While Besiktas are also working hard to offer him a permanent deal due to the performances put in since his arrival in January
Kagawa is a quality player on his day but his signing could be a gamble for either club as he looks to be on the wane. However, given the right environment it is possible that the 30-year-old could regain form which would make him an excellent addition to any team outside the top six.
Can a transfer happen? It is too early to say as the window just opened. There would definetly be new developments in the coming weeks.
