Former Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic is close to becoming teammates with Super Eagles forward Alex Iwobi after he admitted he will “probably” join Everton after receiving a “good offer”.
Ivanonic has been playing for Russian side Zenit St Petersburg since 2017.
But he has been tipped to reunite with his former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti at Goodison Park next season.
The 36-year-old defender, who has also attracted interest from Red Star Belgrade, is a free agent.
And according to The Sun he has confirmed the Meyserside club have made their move to sign him this summer.
“I will probably continue my career at Everton.
“I received a good offer from them.
“I will see how things will turn out.”
Despite being linked to Serbian side Red Star in his homeland, he has not yet received an offer.
He said: “So far, I have not received any offer from Red Star.
“If anyone calls me then I will consider the offer.
“Now, there is no need for me to be thinking about a move to Belgrade.”
Ivanovic played for Srem, OFK Beograd and Lokomotiv Moscow before he joined Chelsea in 2008.
He went on to make over 250 Premier League appearances for the Blues – and won the Premier League under Ancelotti – during his nine-year stay.
Also, he helped Chelsea win the UEFA Champions League, FA Cup and Europa League.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
