Everton reportedly want to sign Marvin Plattenhardt from Hertha Berlin in the summer transfer window.

Hertha Berlin defender Marvin Plattenhardt will join Everton in the summer transfer window, according to The Daily Star Sunday (print edition, page 48, June 17, 2018).

It has been reported that Plattenhardt will head to Everton in a £16 million move but only after the World Cup.

The 26-year-old left-back is part of the Germany squad for the ongoing 2018 World Cup finals in Russia.

Good defender?

Plattenhardt is a very good and established left-back, and is one of the best in his position in Germany.

Signing the 26-year-old would be a smart move for Everton, who need to find a long-term replacement for Leighton Baines, who is 33 years of age.

If the Toffees are able to agree a £16m deal with Hertha, the it could prove to be a bargain signing for the Merseyside outfit.

It also makes sense that Plattenhardt will make a decision on his future after the World Cup, as Germany are aiming to win the prestigious competition in Russia this summer.
