Everton should try bring in defender Filipe Luis on a free transfer in summer

Everton should consider a move for Atletico Madrid defender Filipe Luis in the summer, who could replace the declining Leighton Baines and even overtake Lucas Digne in the left-back pecking order.

The 33-year-old Brazilian left-back is out of contract in the summer as it stands, despite being a consistent performer this campaign for Atletico in his 20 appearances across all competitions.

He recently starred in a Champions League victory over Juventus and the Toffees should plot an ambitious swoop for him on a free transfer.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona and Juventus are potential suitors for the left-sided flyer for next season.

Luis did win a Premier League title during his brief spell with Chelsea, but should have unfinished business in English football.

The full-back would be an excellent mentor for Digne and could help him make the next step up in his game.

Luis is certainly still capable of playing at the top level and the Merseyside club should at least go in for a player that would make an incredible free transfer.

The left-back area may not be a priority for Marco Silva when it comes to improving his XI, but the Atletico defender would be too big an opportunity to miss and make a big difference to the backline.
