Everton eye Man Utd defender

Everton are eyeing up a move for Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof according to reports this weekend.

The Swedish defender, who is currently preparing to take part in the World Cup in Russia, only moved to Old Trafford last summer as in a £30 million move from Benfica.

Despite being one of the club’s most expensive defenders, the 23-year-old struggled to make an impact in his debut season, making just 17 appearances in the Premier League as Jose Mourinho seemed not to trust the ball playing centre-back, despite having signed him.

While Mourinho is willing to keep him at the club and give him a chance to fully adjust to the rigours of the Premier League, United have also been linked with a move to bring in a new central defender this summer, namely Toby Alderweireld and Clement Lenglet.

However, while Lindelof has struggled since moving to Manchester United, that seemingly hasn’t put Everton’s new manager Marco Silva off, with the Mirror claiming that he is willing to sanction a £35 million move.

The Portuguese coach is looking to overhaul his squad after replacing Sam Allardyce at Goodison Park, and thanks to his knowledge of Portuguese football, thinks Lindelof could still be a hit in the Premier League.
