Everton in for AC Milan defender?

Romagnoli to Everton?

Premier League club Everton are lining up a summer approach for AC Milan defender Alessio Romagnoli, The Mirror reports.

The Italy international has transformed into one of the most consistent defenders in the Serie A, and his performances had captured the attention of Chelsea last summer.

According to The Mirror, the Toffees are planning to bring the central defender to Goodison Park with a £25m bid weighed up for the summer.

Toffees boss Ronald Koeman has already highlighted his intention to push his side towards the top-four next season, and this could see them go on a spending spree in the summer.

Ashley Williams has enjoyed a good partnership alongside Phil Jagielka in the recent months, but Koeman is still to bring in a new defender at the heart of the defence with the latter approaching the final stages of his career,

Everton are assured of a place in next season's Europa League owing to their current position, and this could enhance their chances of attracting uprising prospects for next season and beyond.
