Report: Everton, West Ham and Fulham want Manchester City defender Tosin Adarabioyo

The centre-back is a wanted man ahead of the transfer deadline.

Premier League trio Everton, West Ham and Fulham are keen on signing Manchester City defender Tosin Adarabioyo, according to The Guardian.

The 22-year-old has yet to taste Premier League action for the Citizens, spending time on loan at West Bromwich Albion and Blackburn Rovers.

Adarabioyo has played eight times for City but all of his appearances have come in cup competitions, with two coming in the Champions League.

Last season the 6ft 5in player was a regular in Tony Mowbray’s team, playing 34 games for Blackburn at centre-back and once at right-back.

It would seem as though his form in the Championship has now alerted Premier League clubs, however, with the trio weighing up bids.

There is no talk at this stage on what fee it will take to tempt City into a sale but his contract does expire in the summer of 2021.

Adarabioyo is unlikely to feature much at City this season, with Nicolas Otamendia, Aymeric Laporte, John Stones, Nathan Ake and Eric Garcia all above him in the pecking order.

 

All three of the clubs on offer would probably appeal to Adarabioyo who is paid £30,000-a-week at City (Spotrac).

TBR View – All three options attractive for various reasons

Everton kicked off their season with a stunning win at Tottenham and could perhaps do with another defender.

Under Carlo Ancelotti, they could be a team to watch and the club has big ambitions.

West Ham are in desperate need of signings and in particular defensive ones. Adarabioyo would certainly represent a cheaper option than Burnley’s James Tarkowski who has been linked.

Fulham are newly promoted and after a 3-0 defeat to Arsenal on the opening day, clearly need bolstering at the back.

The Cottagers might be the club that could offer him the most first-team football and that could play into his thinking when choosing his next club.
