Everton rejected the chance to sign RB Salzburg striker Erling Haaland for a cut-price fee, it has been revealed.
Steve Walsh, who was axed from Merseyside 18 months ago, moved from Leicester after helping lead their incredible Premier League triumph three-years-ago thanks to his savvy recruitment.
Walsh told The Athletic: “While I was at Everton, I offered them Andrew Robertson and Harry Maguire deals, when they were at Hull, and it was worth £20 million for the pair. Everton wouldn't take them.
“I had a deal done for Jonny Evans too before he came to Leicester, but again they wouldn't take him. Erling Haaland, the striker with Salzburg, I had him and his dad at the club with a deal done for £3.4m (€4m). The club wouldn't back me."
