​Sporting CP knockback Everton bid for Wendel

Sporting CP are playing hard ball with Everton regarding star Wendel.

The central midfielder is a key target for Carlo Ancelotti's team.

However, Plataforma reports that a €15 million offer from Everton was turned down.

Sporting would prefer at least €20 million.

The club are aware they have to sell players this summer to balance their books and rejuvenate their squad.

But they do not want to sell Wendel, who is only 22, on the cheap. He is also wanted by Nice, Napoli and Fiorentina.

The Brazilian has played 67 games in all competitions for the club since arriving from Fluminense.
