As the winter transfer window comes closer and closer Everton are being linked with more and more potential transfers. According to multiple reports emanating from England, Everton are linked with a move for Empoli left-back Fabiano Parisi.
Parisi has been at Empoli since 2020 when he joined from Avellino. The 22-year-old’s contract is set to expire at the end of the 2024/25 campaign.
The left-back has banged in two goals in 14 Serie A matches for Empoli this term.
The 22-year-old has long been touted as one of Italy’s most promising young talents. Parisi has represented Italy at Under-21 level, winning 7 caps.
Fabiano Parisi is set to be a man in demand in the winter transfer window, with a host of clubs queuing up to pursue his signature.
Frank Lampard is looking to shore up his defensive options and Empoli’s Fabiano Parisi happens to be a target. The report claims that Everton manager has extensively scouted Parisi and is considering a move for the left-back.
The former Avellino man will add more quality to Everton’s defense.

According to the report, “Empoli fullback Fabiano Parisi is interesting Everton. La Stampa says the Blues are one of several clubs who are showing an interest in the 22-year-old but they face serious competition from Torino and Wolfsburg for his signature. Everton are looking to strengthen their squad in January as Frank Lampard looks to move his inconsistent side further up the table and away from a repeat of last season’s nervy relegation battle.”
However, Everton will have to balance the books before attempting to land Fabiano Parisi. Considering they don’t have a big budget, Everton will have to be smart with the signings in the transfer window. It would take a huge offer from them to prise the 22-year-old left-back from Empoli.
Empoli would be wise to keep the Italy international, but if they do let him go expect it to be for a hefty sum.
Good signing for Everton?
The Premier League side need to add more depth to their defense and the 22-year-old would be a good signing.
Fabiano Parisi has all the skillset required to be a success story at Everton. Therefore, it makes sense for Frank Lampard to step up his attempts to bring the Italian left-back to Premier League side.
Stylistically, he would be a great fit at Goodison Park.
How strong that interest is and whether the Toffees will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
