Michael Brown believes Everton would be getting a bargain if they’re able to complete the £25m purchase of Watford midfielder Abdoulaye Doucouré.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, the former Spurs midfielder expects Watford to try to keep hold of Doucouré after offering him a blockbuster contract.
Reports suggest that Everton’s opening offer for the 27-year-old was rejected but a second one is expected and the Hornets are holding out for £25m.
The Toffees are willing to offer the Frenchman a £120,000-a-week deal which would make him one of their highest earners, as revealed by Football Insider.
Asked by Football Insider whether Doucouré would represent an upgrade for Carlo Ancelotti’s side, Brown said: “I like him.
“I think he’s a great player and I think he’ll be a great addition.
