Everton winger Bernard is the subject of interested from Dubai-based side Al Nasr, according to reports.

The 28-year-old joined the Toffees on a free transfer from Shakhtar Donetsk in 2018. He got 28 goals and 35 assists for the Ukrainian side from just over 150 appearances.

The Brazillian’s five-year spell at Shakhtar came to an end in 2018 as his contract with them expired. He put pen-to-paper on a four-year deal with Everton.

Bernard was a mainstay in Everton’s side during his debut season. He made 36 appearances across all competitions, as he netted twice and grabbed four assists.

His game time decreased in his second year. He made 27 appearances in the Premier League in 2019/20, as he got three goals and two assists.

The winger has only been a bit-part player for Everton so far this campaign. He has only started twice in the Premier League and he has played ten times across all competitions.

Sky Sports have reported that Al Nasr are weighing up a £10m move for Bernard this month. The Dubai club are said to prefer a permanent deal for the Toffees forward.

The report adds that Everton are yet to receive an official offer for Bernard. But the player only has 18 months remaining on his current deal, so they may be tempted to sell this month.
