Everton director Marcel Brands has confirmed that the club won’t overpay for players.
The Dutchman discussed the potential signing of Hirving Lozano and revealed that PSV will have to lower their demands for the Mexican.
He also spoke about Steven Bergwijn during an interview with Voetbal International.
Brands believes that Lozano and Bergwijn have not proven themselves at the highest level and therefore they are not worth the asking price.
He also confirmed that Everton will consider a move for Lozano if PSV reduce the asking price to €20m. Currently, the Mexican is valued at around €30m.
Brands signed Lozano at PSV and he knows all about the player’s qualities. The Mexican was one of the most impressive players at the World Cup and signing him would be quite a coup for Everton.
Lozano has scored 14 goals for PSV so far this season. He managed to score 19 last season.
Everton fans have now shared their thoughts on the arrival of the winger and Brands’ comments on social media.
Here are some of the reactions from earlier.
Brands won’t over pay but another club will. I, for one, am happy to have a DoF who will not pursue a bad deal. ????

I don’t know if I agree with him, at least about Lozano. I think he is ready to play in PL and could be a key player for us
