Frank Fabra would be a bargain buy for Everton at £7.5 million

Peru's Wilder Cartagena (L) and Colombia's Frank Fabra vie for the ball during their 2018 World Cup qualifier football match in Lima, on October 10, 2017.

Everton could solve their left-back problem and have plenty of money left to spend elsewhere on their squad.

According to a report in The Sun, Boca Juniors only want £7.5 million for Frank Fabra, which could make him a potential bargain addition for Everton.

The Toffees are desperately in need of a left-back for next season, and if they can solve their problem position for just £7.5 million it would have to be considered a major victory in the transfer market for the Toffees.

Everton have struggled to find a left sided defender this term, with Cuco Martina regularly having to play out of position at left-back.

Leighton Baines can no longer be relied upon, due to his struggles with injury, and it means that bringing in a new left-back will be imperative this summer.

If Everton can snap up Fabra then they can feel very satisfied with their business, as he could be a great buy for that price.

Although Fabra is unproven in Europe, his form in South America suggests he could cope.

The Colombian international is blessed with pace and power, and his attacking quality would make him an exciting addition.

If Everton can snap him up for a relatively small fee, they would also have plenty of money to spend elsewhere on their squad.

And the potential deal to bring Fabra to Goodison Park is starting to look like a no-brainer for the Toffees.
