Everton are said to be considering a £30 million move for the Manchester United centre-back, whose disciplinary record in English football is hardly exemplary.
Rojo plays on the edge, and his commitment simply cannot be questioned.
The Argentine defender occasionally is rash in his defensive work, but Everton could do with an enforcer to make them a tougher nut to crack.
Everton were arguably too nice to play against last season, with none of their centre-backs really giving strikers physical tests.
However, Rojo would change all that and he really would add steel to Everton’s backline.
While Rojo is far from the perfect defender, he could still be what Everton need - as he possesses a lot of the qualities that they have been lacking in recent times.
And if Everton could add Rojo to a defence which also contains the combative Yerry Mina, who the Liverpool Echo claim they are targeting, then they could be a fearsome side for opposition sides to come up against next term.
