After learning Nani has a £6.5 million release clause in his current deal with Fenerbahce it appears Everton have become interested in the 29 year old former Manchester United winger. Nani has also had an impressive Euro 2016 competition and drawn attention from several other clubs.

Valencia and Inter Milan are also thought to be making a move for the player with reports of various offers already submitted. Some newer rumors also say Liverpool has expressed interest in him and might play spoiler to Everton. Of course it’ll come down to playing time and wages if Nani decides to return to the Premier League and finally Everton will no longer be left behind when it comes to the ability to compete when it comes to wages.

As a member of Fenerbahce in the Turkish League, Nani scored a total of 12 goals and 13 assists in all competitions. He featured in 47 games this season, a solid output from the winger. He’s three years younger than Wesley Sneijder who Everton is also reportedly bidding on and also played in the same league. It’s unlikely Everton gain the services of both and Nani being younger and having a better offensive season might be the better option.
