Everton are considering a last-ditch attempt to sign Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake, according to The Sun.
According to the report Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori is also on a list of defensive targets for the Toffees.
Marco Silva is a centre-back short after seeing Kurt Zouma return to Chelsea following his loan spell.
His search has now led him to the Cherries ace; although it is believed they will hold out for a staggering £75 million.
Everton’s transfer window has been superb so far. Moise Kean, Fabian Delph, Andre Gomes, Jonas Lossl and Jean-Philippe Gbamin have all arrived, whilst Wilfried Zaha has been heavily linked (The Independent).
The 24-year-old signed for Bournemouth in 2017 for £20 million, according to BBC Sport. He has played 91 times for the club and has also earned 10 caps for Holland.
Tomori spent last season on loan at Derby under the now Chelsea manager Frank Lampard. Despite featuring for the Blues during pre-season, it would appear the club is willing to allow him to head out once again.
Surely the bounty placed on the head of Ake will rule Everton out of proceedings to sign him.
The club is already planning a big-money swoop on Crystal Palace for Wilfried Zaha, so surely they won’t land both.
Out of Ake and Tomori, the proven Dutchman would represent the better player, but the Chelsea man is expected to be one for the future.
He was in fine form for the Rams last season and would relish the chance to play first-team football at Goodison Park.
The 21-year-old isn’t the tried and tested option that Ake would offer, but right now Everton could pay a small loan fee as opposed to the £80 million that is expected for Ake.
