Everton poised to lose Bernard as agent speaks out over frustration at club

Everton could allow Bernard to leave in January having kept the Brazilian at the club throughout the summer.

Many expected him to leave Goodison Park in the recent transfer window with Serie A giants Roma having been interested.

A deal that would have been worth around £7m was reportedly rejected with Toffees boss Carlo Ancelotti telling Bernard he is a key member of the squad.

But the 28-year-old’s agent has hinted that the player won’t be staying on Merseyside for much longer.

Adrian Spadoto has told LaRoma24: “We tried to convince Everton to let him go, but they did not agree. Not even on loan.

“I think so [January], the player could be sold for around €7 million [£6m].”

Bernard is into the final two years of the four-year contract he signed at Goodison Park in August 2018.

Bernard is yet to feature in the Prem this season having been left on the bench for all four matches.

The Toffees have won every one of their games, seeing them top the league, and Ancelotti was named manager of the month for September.

After receiving his award, Ancelotti took to social media to thank fans for their support.

He tweeted: “This is a great achievement for this month. I have to share this recognition with my team because they started the season well.

“We want to continue and win this award again. Thanks to all.”

It was double glory for Everton with striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin winning the player of the month award.

He added: “A great start to the season. Thank you to my team mates and the people that voted.”
