Does Martinez still want Manga?

One of the things Evertonians have had to get used too quickly is being linked with players who had previously been linked with moves to Wigan Athletic.

Now you have to firstly ask yourself if Everton should really be targeting the same standard of player who Wigan could attract, a small club admittedly more bankrolled than us and with silverware in their trophy cabinet, but ultimately a side that were relegated from the Premier League last season.

Is that really the quality we should be after?

Secondly you have to wonder if the media are just using a new angle to whip up a story.

The truth as ever is somewhere in the middle and of course the targets that Martinez failed to sign could have been the quality he needed to have staved off relegation.

Either way after having a manager at Goodison Park for ten years in David Moyes, things will be changing quite a bit following the appointment of Roberto Martinez. On the pitch and off it.

Following on from the links to the likes of Keisuke Honda and Aiden McGeady comes Lorient defender Ecuele Manga.

Ironically, he was previously linked with a move to Everton a couple of years ago, but it was Wigan, according to the player at least who showed the most interest.

'I want to play in England, Wigan were interested in me the last two seasons, but I wanted a big challenge and I was not ready for that. he was quoted by Sky Sports News.

The 24-year-old Gabonese international then went on to add: 'My agent is talking to various English clubs so things can move quickly. Everton could be great for me and they are a huge club in England.

'I will realise my dream playing for such a club.'


Are his comments an indication that his agent has already spoken with Everton? Or is he just making a come and get me plea to Roberto Martinez?

Time will tell.
