Everton should make a move for Dutch international outcast Ricardo van Rhijn as Seamus Coleman cover

The Ajax star has played with Jong Ajax in recent times as his career with the Dutch side took a slide.

Everton defeated Manchester City in the first-leg of their Capital One Cup semi-final this week but the result did come at a price.

They lost Seamus Coleman to injury in the game and it appears as though the Irish right-back is all set to spend four weeks on the sidelines with the injury.

That leaves Everton short in the right-back position. Tyias Browning is out long-term with a knee injury whilst John Stones is currently needed at centre-back.

Youngsters Matthew Pennington and Mason Holgate are potential options but Everton should look in the transfer market for a new option.

One potential option they should consider is Ricardo van Rhijn.

The Ajax defender burst onto the scene in 2011 and went on to push Gregory van der Wiel out of the Ajax and Dutch starting XI.

He has now suffered that same fate. He is currently second choice at Ajax after the emergence of Kenny Tete and will want to be playing regular football.

He would not be expensive and provide decent cover for Coleman for the next month and in the future.

Surely he is worth a look?
