Everton reportedly hope to sign Conor Coady from Wolves this summer.
TEAMtalk have claimed the Toffees are looking to pull of a major surprise by landing the 28-year-old from Molineux.
Everton have endured a truly awful season in 2021/22 so far, and are hovering precariously above the relegation zone at the moment.
Frank Lampard replaced Rafa Benitez at the end of January, but his arrival has not sparked the renaissance everyone at Goodison Park had hoped for.
Their defence has been extremely poor, and at the moment they have shipped 49 goals, which is the fifth-worst record in the division.
It is little wonder they are thinking about signing defenders for next season.
But Everton should probably forget all about signing Coady if there is indeed interest in him. And that’s even if they retain their Premier League status for next season.
It just isn’t going to happen.
First and foremost, Wolves are in much better shape than Everton right now.
The club are pushing for European football, and have some quality players in the squad. And it’s all being overseen by a talented manager with lots of ideas and a tremendous work ethic.
Secondly, Coady has been with Wolves since 2015 and the star simply loves the club.
He has spoken many times about grateful he is to Wolves for making him the player he is today.
Coady finds it an honour to be the club’s captain. He finds it special to play at Molineux, and he also loves the city of Wolverhampton.
Coady to Everton has absolutely no chance of happening
Even if Coady was actually open to a fresh challenge this summer, there’s surely no way Everton would be able to afford him.
This is arguably Coady’s best season for Wolves. He’s a top player, and the England international is now in his prime. And he has a contract until 2025.
It was recently announced that Everton are struggling financially. They may need to sell a big-hitter like Dominic Calvert-Lewin or Richarlison to balance the books (via The Sun).
So with that also in mind, there is just no way Coady heads for Goodison Park this summer.
