Report: Everton have just made move to sign £17m Tottenham target today
The restart of the Premier League is now less than two weeks away, with Everton just a point above the drop zone.
The January transfer window could be the key to the Toffees securing their top-flight status.
Everton are desperate to find a way to score more goals, as they currently average less than one a game in the league.
Lampard has made Everton much more defensively resilient.
TuttoMercatoWeb’s report suggests Everton are looking to improve their back line even further.
They believe that Everton now want to sign Udinese defender Rodrigo Becao, and have made their move today.
The Italian publication says that ‘there has been a survey by Everton for the defender in the last few hours’.
Everton want to sign Rodrigo Becao
This isn’t the first time the Toffees have been linked with the Brazilian.
Instead, Coady and Tarkowski arrived, but a number of Everton’s back-up defenders could be on the move soon.
Becao has had a fine season with Udinese, and his £17m price tag has attracted interest from Tottenham.
According to FBRef, he’s in the top 5% of centre-backs for tackles and progressive passes.
Becao defends well in one-on-one situations, and uses the ball well when in possession.
Everton may need to act quickly if they want to sign Becao.
They could face a lot of competition from other Premier League sides if it becomes clear he’s available in January.
