Dani Parejo’s Valencia misery puts Everton and Fulham on alert

According to Talksport both Everton and Fulham are interested in signing Valencia midfielder Dani Parejo on loan in the winter transfer market.

The 22-year-old only joined Los Ché in the summer for a reported €6m fee from Getafe, with out-of-favour goalkeeper Miguel Ángel Moya moving in the opposite direction, but the move to the Mestalla appears to have gone sour on him. As a result, Parejo is now looking for a way out to gain more playing time, having appeared in just three official matches for Unai Emery’s team this season - two in La Liga against Real Mallorca and Real Zaragoza and a Champions League outing against Genk.

The former Real Madrid player was touted as one of Emery’s great hopes for the 2011/12 season and the inauspicious start to his Valencia career has not gone unnoticed in the Premier League, with David Moyes and Martin Jol in particular monitoring his situation. His omission from the Spanish Under-21 squad this week has also convinced Parejo he needs to find first-team football, although Emery may be reluctant to grant him his wish as the injured Ever Banega will be sidelined for another six weeks and he needs cover.

Reports a couple of months ago suggested Arsenal were also interested in the Spanish Under-21 international and the Gunners are believed to have met with his agents. However, their interest has now cooled and that has left the way open for Everton and Fulham. The Merseysiders are thought to be especially keen as they see him as a replacement for fellow Spaniard Mikel Arteta, snapped up by Arsenal in the summer as a substitute for another Spaniard, Cesc Fabregas.

If Parejo does decide on a move to England it will be his second experience of the country after a four-month loan spell with Queens Park Rangers in 2008, during which he made 14 league appearances.
