Everton appear to have made signing a new right-back their top priority heading into the summer transfer window.
With Seamus Coleman now on the wrong side of 30, Le10 Sport claims the Toffees are eyeing a deal for PSG’s swashbuckling Belgium international Thomas Meunier while Montpellier’s rising star Ruben Aguilar is also a target, according to Calciomercato.
And it is just as well that Everton have identified a range of targets. Because it seems unlikely that Aaron Wan Bissaka will be plying his trade at Goodison Park next season.
Arguably the most impressive young full-back to emerge in the Premier League in many a year, Wan Bissaka has been a revelation since forcing his way into the Crystal Palace starting XI a year ago.
Powerful, aggressive and technically superb, the talented Englishman does not appear to have a single flaw in his game. No wonder Everton are keen as they look to sign a player who could replace Coleman on Merseyside (the Mail).
But, with all due respect to the Toffees, what chance do they realistically have with Bayern Munich seemingly identifying Wan Bissaka as a key part of their plans as the Bundesliga champions attempt to rebuild their squad in the summer.
The Sun reports that Bayern will bid for the 21-year-old, who could cost up to £40 million.
Everton have shown during the Farhad Moshiri regime that they are willing to pay top dollar, but why would Wan Bissaka join a club stuck in mid-table when a genuine European giant like Bayern Munich comes calling?
