The Great­est Chancer of the Trans­fer Win­dow?

That would be the agent who con­tacted Ever­ton sport­ing di­rec­tor Mar­cel Brands af­ter the club signed Kurt Zouma on a sea­son-long loan from Chelsea.

“He sent me a mes­sage say­ing, ‘con­grat­u­la­tions with Zouma, can I send my in­voice for £50k to you?’” How much in­volve­ment had said agent in the deal? Zero. “I never even spoke to him - it was crazy,” said Brands. Worth a try, though.
