Everton are set to seal their second summer signing in Barcelona left back Lucas Digne, but more new faces could be arriving at Goodison Park before the transfer deadline.

The Toffees took a while to get going in the transfer market, but swooped to land Richarlison from Watford last week as their first summer signing, with Digne now set to follow suit.

Everton still need more additions, and whilst a centre back and a central midfielder should be a priority for Marcel Brands and Marco Silva, another winger is being linked.

 

Spanish newspaper Marca claim that Everton are interested in signing Villarreal winger Denis Cheryshev, with the La Liga side seemingly willing to let him leave this summer.

Cheryshev, 27, didn't make much of an impact with Villarreal last season, starting just nine La Liga games and registering only two goals and one assist – but he became a star at the World Cup.

The wide man hit four goals in Russia's journey to the quarter-finals of their home tournament, including a brace against Saudi Arabia and a stunning long-range goal against Croatia.

Now, Everton could look to give the former Real Madrid a talent a chance to impress in England – and fans have offered something of a split opinion on Twitter about a possible move.

Some want to see Cheryshev arrive at Goodison Park, feeling he's an experienced winger who can come in on the left and replace Ademola Lookman if he leaves the club, though others feel that another winger isn't what Everton need right now, with some underwhelmed.
