In­ter keen on Eto’o re­union

Midweek Sport - - SPORT -

EVER­TON are fac­ing a fight to hold on to striker Sa­muel Eto’o as In­ter Mi­lan look to bring the veteran striker back to the San Siro.

Sam­p­do­ria are also in­ter­ested in the for­mer Chelsea and Barcelona striker (above).

Ever­ton boss Roberto Martinez in­sisted there had been no ap­proaches for the 33-year-old ahead of the Tof­fees’ FA Cup re­play at West Ham last night.

But that looks likely to change be­fore the trans­fer win­dow closes at the end of the month.

In­ter vice pres­i­dent Javier Zanetti said: “He did some ex­tra­or­di­nary things with us and now he wants to come back to Italy. His re­turn to Serie A would be most wel­come.”

Eto’o, who joined Ever­ton as a free agent on an 18-month deal last sum­mer, was a Cham­pi­ons League and Serie A ti­tle win­ner with In­ter dur­ing a two-year spell with the club from 2009 to 2011.
