Mandzukic is supposedly on the radar of other Premier League sides too, because he is available at a 'fair' price from his German club, Wolfsburg.
The 26-year-old was signed by Wolfsburg's then-coach Steve McClaren — a friend of Everton boss David Moyes's No 2 Steve Round — for £6million and has two years left on his contract.

I have been watching him thinking he would fit in well as he charges the balls down and works hard.

£7M... No, ta.

Let's keep Moyes, Fellaini and Baines AND OF COURSE buy Pienaar!
I don't know where these rumours come from. We haven't two ha'pennies to rub together!
307 Posted 16/06/2012 at 15:12:31
I wouldn't be surprised to see Prajnic sign. He's a free agent now... hee would be cover for Baines and a decent squad player who can also play as a winger.
310 Posted 16/06/2012 at 15:19:50
Out of our league... but Dzagoev looks quality and Pilar would definitely be a good Pienaar alternative.

Agree too that Selassie would be good as well as a number of players like Dzagoev who will be on the shopping lists of the big boys.
I'd also welcome giving Arshavin a crack on loan if he isn't set on staying in Russia and if we don't get Pienaar. He really comes alive in these tournaments, doesn't he? Although he has blown hot and cold in the Premier League...
Great tournament so far, though. Really enjoying it.

Not the kind of player we should be looking at. Only good with his head. Looks like a Croatian Peter Crouch to me. Very greedy as well. I don't think he links up well with Jelavic at all. Jelavic gives him plenty of balls but it only works one way.
A big no thanks. 7m your having a laugh!
Maggio looks class. A great RB but would cost a fair bit.
Polanski looks a complete midfielder and would improve any team.
Dzageov Class and contract out this year so wouldn't command a big fee. Probably bigger fish involved but you might as well try!
Salassie too looks quality.

In all seriousness, almost anyone who has a good Euro2012 will automatically become out of our meagre price range.

Besides that why are we looking at strikers (admittedly we could do with a couple more) when we don't have either a right or a left winger? Our wide areas need to be addressed before we try and add to what we have up front.

He's a lot more mobile and has greater workrate and I think they could learn to work well together.
As far as being a tournament purchase, I think Moyes knows him better than that, he scored against us in our friendly against Wolfsburg and I'm pretty sure if we went for him it would be because he's been well scouted.
926 Posted 18/06/2012 at 22:27:15
I like Croatia. I know we lost a lot of money on Bilic, but they had some fine players in Jarni, Prosnecki, Boban etc.
. Favourite goal: Davor Sukur chipping Schmeichel when the Dane was at the peak of his powers.
