Agent: 'Bernard asked to join Roma'

Bernard’s agent reveals they ‘tried to convince Everton to let him go’ to Roma, but will try again in January. ‘A deal could be done for €7m.’

The 28-year-old Brazil international joined the club in 2018 from Shakhtar Donetsk and his current contract runs to June 2022.

“We tried to convince Everton to let him go, but the club wouldn’t agree even to a loan,” agent Adriano Spadoto told LaRoma24.it.

“I think we will try again in January and a definitive deal could be done for circa €7m.”

Bernard is an attacking winger made 30 appearances for Everton last season, contributing three goals and two assists.

He has already scored one and assisted one in two EFL Cup games this term.
