Everton are reportedly in the hunt to sign Norwich City defender Ben Godfrey.
According to Sky Sports, the Toffees have seen a bid worth £26 million rejected by the Championship club.
Despite Norwich’s poor showing in the Premier League in 2019/20 that resulted in relegation, Godfrey was a player that really stood out for the Canaries.
There has been speculation about his future, and things have been relatively quiet for most of the summer.
But it could be that something happens soon with the end of the transfer window fast approaching
Everton have made a fine start to the new season and are very much a free-scoring side at the moment.
But Carlo Ancelotti’s side have kept just two clean sheets in their six games so far, which makes it easy to see why central defender Godfrey is a target.
Michael Keane has actually made a decent start, but Yerry Mina has been a little shaky.
He is a popular figure at Goodison, but fans know they are yet to see the best of the Colombia international.
TBR’s View – Mina must step up amid Godfrey interest
At the current state of play, it’s Mina who is arguably the most vulnerable to losing his starting berth if Godfrey came in before Monday’s deadline.
The £120,000-a-week South American colossus (Spotrac) has again left a lot to be desired at the back so far – his defending on Grady Diangana’s goal in the recent game against West Bromwich Albion springing to mind.
If he wants to continue being selected as Keane’s partner, he will need to start being a bit more consistent – on his day he is absolutely fearsome, he just needs to keep better focus and make better decisions.
