International winger tipped for Prem move with Everton battling West Ham
Georgian international Kvicha Kvaratskhelia is on the radar of Everton and West Ham, after impressing scouts greatly in recent months.
Kvaratskhelia was of interest to some big clubs in the summer. Indeed, Tottenham and AC Milan were vying for his signature, however nothing came of either side’s interest.
Since then, the Georgia international has continued to impress, and teams have begun to take note.
He has contributed to four goals in 15 Russian Premier Liga appearances this season. Furthermore, his international form has warranted welcome intrigue.
Kvaratskhelia has scored five goals in 12 appearances for his country. What’s more, he scored a brace in a man-of-the-match performance against Sweden last month.
Everton and West Ham reportedly have concrete interest in the 20-year-old, per Football Insider.
Given Everton’s dire form of late, a proven attacking talent would be a major bonus for the side.
A slight drop in form has meant West Ham have slipped below fourth place, a position they have occupied for much of the season. As such, adding talent to the forward line so that they can bounce back would be a smart move.

The Hammers need a centre half to ease their injury issues but are also interested in the MLS top scorer.
Kvaratskhelia is currently valued at £16.20million, per Transfermarkt. A deal of that price would be much easier for West Ham to complete than it would Everton.
As such, the Hammers seem to be in the box seat. Interest from Southampton may also be a factor, though that is only rumoured.
Kvaratskhelia joined as potential Hammers transfers
It was recently revealed that Dele Alli would be allowed to leave Tottenham. West Ham has been identified as a potential destination for the England international.
Indeed, Danny Mills feels that Alli could thrive under the management of David Moyes.
“If Dele Alli is prepared to work hard then there is no better manager than David Moyes. They need that sort of player, they need that sort of attacking player in their ranks. That would be a good move,” he said.
What’s more, Jesse Lingard had a successful period at West Ham, and Alli could potentially do the same.
