“Real Betis Stands Firm on £15M Price Tag for Luiz Henrique as Everton Pursues Loan Deal”

Real Betis remains uninterested in selling Luiz Henrique to Everton this month and is firm on their €18 million (£15 million) price tag, rejecting any negotiations, according to Estadio Deportivo. Everton, desiring a loan until the season’s end with an option to make it permanent, faces resistance from Betis. While Henrique’s representatives are open to the move, Betis insists on the £15 million fee and would only consider a loan with an obligation to buy.

Betis’s reluctance to entertain existing offers for Luiz Henrique provides an opportunity for Everton to strengthen their pursuit. Everton’s preference for a pure loan deal aligns with their strategy to evaluate the player’s adaptability in the Premier League before committing to a permanent transfer.

However, Betis insists on the £15 million price tag being met at the loan’s conclusion, posing a financial challenge for Everton amid their current sell-to-buy scenario. The club is exploring options to strengthen its squad, with potential interest in players like Amadou Onana, Abdoulaye Doucoure, and Arnaut Danjuma. While Onana and Doucoure are unlikely to leave this month, Danjuma, facing limited opportunities, might be a viable option.

The potential departure of Danjuma could leave Everton short in attack, making Henrique an appealing prospect. However, doubts persist about Henrique’s immediate impact on Everton’s attack, and an obligation to buy entails a significant risk for the club. Everton may need to consider alternative targets closer to home given the current circumstances.
