According to The Sun, Everton are interested in signing Fabian Delph from Manchester City in the summer transfer window.

It has been reported that the British tabloid that Everton could secure the services of the 29-year-old former Leeds United and Aston Villa midfielder for £16 million.

 

Turkish giants Galatasaray are also interested in the England international, but the 29-year-old - who can also operate as a left-back - would prefer to stay in England, according to the report.

Good signing for Everton?

Delph has done well at City and has become better since he left Villa in 2015, and has won the Premier League title twice with the Citizens.

It could be hard for the Englishman to play regularly for Pep Guardiola’s side next season, and moving to Everton could be appealing to the former Leeds star.

Everton could do with another experienced and capable midfielder in their team, and Delph for the reported transfer fee of £16m would be a very good signing for Marco Silva’s side.
