According to John Percy of Telegraph, Everton and Burnley are in negotiations for the transfer of Dwight McNeil. They claim all sides believe a deal can be agreed.
Everton are close to a £15M deal for the versatile player. Dwight McNeil can operate at left-wing-back, Left-wing, and on the right wing.
He has been crucial to Burnley over the past years, but his ability is needed in the Premier League and not the Championship.
Despite a poor 2021/22 campaign, Dwight McNeil completed 90 dribbles in the Premier League. Only Allan Saint-Maximin completed more.
He played all 38 games as the Clarets got relegated. Dwight McNeil recorded only one assist despite creating 47 chances and six big chances.
The Burnley academy graduate can continue his progress at Everton under progressive manager Frank Lampard.
The former Derby County and Chelsea manager managed to escape relegation last season and will be looking to improve this season with his blue underachievers.
Dwight McNeil can plug many holes in the field. He offers the Toffees a creative outlet. His 47 chances created was more than any Everton player recorded in the League.
Dwight McNeil may not be the scoring machine Everton fans are hoping for after losing Richarlison, but he is talented.
Dwight McNeil is a smart transfer by a club that needs to start making smart decisions.
