'The place to go' - Neal Maupay agent speaks out over player's Everton future

The agent of Everton forward Neal Maupay has admitted his client could leave Goodison Park at the end of the season - insisting the forward is open to a move to Serie A.

The 26-year-old has struggled for form since making the move to Goodison Park from Brighton and Hove Albion 12 months ago and has managed just one Premier League goal in 20 appearances for the Blues.

Since Sean Dyche succeeded Frank Lampard at the helm in late January, Maupay has started just three of a possible eight Premier League games under the former Burnley boss and most recently found himself behind Blues youngster Ellis Simms in the striking pecking order at Goodison Park.

And now, the Frenchman's agent, Federico Pastorello, has revealed previous interest from Serie A clubs could be revived this summer as the former Brighton and Brentford striker looks set to assess his options at the end of the season.

Speaking to Tuttomercatoweb, Pastorello said: "We had strong negotiations with Salernitana, and then he went to Everton.

"There was a technical change, we're at the end of the season and we'll see what to do.

"You see [Serie] A as a place to go, we will work to accommodate him, there will probably be work for him to do in Italy."

Maupay joined Everton in 2022 on a three-year contract with the option of a further year, signing for what was officially described as an undisclosed fee. The forward left Brighton having scored 26 goals in 84 Premier League starts.
