Everton flop Funes Mori in talks to join Monterrey


Everton defender Ramiro Funes Mori has been linked with a move away from the club and could be set to move to Monterrey in Mexico where his brother Rogelio plays as a forward.

If the move goes ahead, the Toffees could make up to £10 million which could be a profit as they paid £9.5 million in order to recruit the Argentina international in 2015.

Since arriving at Goodisan Park, Funes Mori has not been able to establish himself as a first-team regular despite arriving with heavy-expectations.

He has found himself behind the club’s the likes of Phil Jagielka, Michael Keane and Ashley Williams in the club’s pecking order.

He struggled to earn game-time under Sam Allardyce last season which likely ended up costing him a position in the Argentina squad which travels to Russia to play in this summer’s World Cup.

The defender was also linked with a move to Italian club Lazio last month.

It would now be best for Funes Mori to leave Goodisan Park for both club an player.

A move to Mexico could allow Funes Mori an opportunity to play as regularly as possible as well as a chance to start enjoying football again and resurrect his career.
