The Mirror has claimed that Everton manager Sam Allardyce wants to recruit the former England Under-21 international in the January transfer window.
According to The Mirror (Transfer live blog, 21:37, Thursday, January 11, 2018), Swansea paid Barnsley a transfer fee of £5 million in the summer of 2016 to sign Mawson.
Swansea manager Carlos Carvalhal has stated that there is no plan to sell the centre-back, but the former Sheffield Wednesday boss has suggested that an offer of £50 could make a difference.
Carvalhal is quoted as saying by The Mirror (Transfer live blog, 21:37, Thursday, January 11, 2018): “When I signed I was told we would not sell our best players, we only want to bring players in.
“I have had guarantees from the chairman. If someone comes in with £50m it might be different. But I want to keep my best players and I don’t know if we have had an approach.”
