And SunSport believes that Buta is one of Rafa Benitez’s main targets as he attempts to bolster his defense ahead of the new season. Despite having Seamus Coleman and Jonjoe Kenny as right-back alternatives, Benitez is skeptical and wants more depth in that position.
Buta, a Portuguese international, has just one year left on his contract with Antwerp, and Celtic has expressed interest in him. A £1 million bid from the Scottish giants was turned down, with Antwerp looking for roughly £3 million.
Benitez, who has already signed Andros Townsend, Demarai Gray, and Asmir Begovic this summer, will make the final decision. James Rodriguez refused to say whether he would be at Everton next season last week. In the fast-paced football world where things change at the speed of light, the Toffees playmaker told the club’s supporters that he is taking each day as it comes.
On the Twitch streaming network, Rodriguez shared his candid revelation with Everton fans. “With my future, I’m seeing what happens,” he said while answering in-depth questions from them. “Football changes a lot every day.”
“I can’t give you any guarantees.” It can change dramatically in a few of hours.”
