Everton are keen on landing the right-back for a fee of £15 million, as Marco Silva believes that his compatriot could improve his squad at Goodison Park.
And past photos of the Everton boss with the Southampton man show just how strong their relationship is.
Cedric has fallen out of favour at Southampton recently, but has previously proven to be a strong right-back in England.
Everton could be in the market for a new right-sided defender, as Seamus Coleman’s form this season hasn’t impressed.
Coleman has struggled to live up to expectations, with Silva now potentially looking at other options.
If Everton were to bring in Cedric, he could become their first addition in the January transfer window, after a quiet start at Goodison Park so far.
