Marcel Brands sends warning on PSV duo Lozano and Bergwijn

Everton sporting director Marcel Brands has stated the club will not be held to ransom over the PSV duo of Hirving Lozano and Steven Bergwijn.
The club’s director of football Marcel Brands revealed he was in negotiations for PSV Eindhoven over bringing Lozano to Everton but warned his former club they won’t be splashing the cash needlessly.
But he told Voetbal International: “I think that if Hirving Lozano and Steven Bergwijn go directly to the absolute top in the Premier League, they will have it very difficult.
“Look at Keïta at Liverpool. He was signed for more than €50m from Leipzig, but is simply on the bench.
“Of course Lozano and Bergwijn are interesting players, but €30m for Hirving and €20m for Steven, we will not pay that. We have indeed paid a lot of money for Richarlison, but he is 21 years old and has already shown it in the Premier League.
“He is likely to deliver double (that amount if sold). I do not know yet with Lozano and Bergwijn.”
