TBR’s View

Cuesta would be an equally impressive get for Everton.

 

He was a standout player at the under-20 World Cup and has been a regular in the Atletico Nacional first-team picture since the age of 17.

If Everton can bring him in, they could have a potential long-term defensive rock on their hands.
