Everton to further scout Turkish Super Lig star

  Everton to further scout Turkish Super Lig star Everton will have scouts attend Galatasaray’s final two games of the season to further scout winger Garry Rodrigues, according to sources in Turkey. Rodrigues has been linked with Everton over the past few months, previously being linked with a summer switch by Turkish outlet Takvim, and now Fanatik, as reported by Sport Witness, claim that Everton are still interested in the 27-year old attacker. Galatasaray play Yeni Malatyaspor on Saturday, before closing the season out against Goztepe the following week, and Fanatik claim that Everton will have scouts in attendance for both fixtures. Rodrigues has been in impressive form for Gala this season, scoring nine and assisting nine goals in the Turkish Super Lig. While transfer talks are expected to be held off until the season has concluded, Galatasaray will certainly make sure they receive top dollar for their star if he is to leave. There have been suggestions that an Everton move for Rodrigues would cost in the region the Toffees paid for Besiktas striker Cenk Tosun in January – around £27million.

Atletico Madrid eye shock swoop for Sergio Aguero .
According to Radio MARCA, Sergio Aguero may be making a sensational return to Atletico Madrid this summer. Aguero signed for Manchester City when he left Atletico back in 2011 and has gone on to become the club’s all-time leading goal scorer. He has helped City win three Premier League titles, three League Cups and a Community Shield. Despite earning a place in the Team of the Year and scoring 21 league goals this season, Aguero’s future in Manchester has been in doubt for a while. Atletico superstar Antoine Griezmann is likely to leave this summer and Atleti are eyeing a move for Aguero to replace him as their main striker, but MARCA understands the deal could still go ahead even if Griezmann doesn’t leave the club. Both Atletico and Aguero’s representatives have decided to leave the negotiations until after the World Cup in Russia so the striker can focus on guiding Argentina to World Cup glory.
