Everton reportedly want Swansea City defender Joe Rodon.
According to the Daily Mail, Everton are interested in snapping up Swansea City defender Joe Rodon during the January transfer window.
It’s claimed that Rodon is one of a number of defenders being eyed up by the Toffees this month, with a centre back signing surely the priority.
Everton spent much of the summer trying to land Kurt Zouma on a permanent basis after a strong loan spell, but couldn’t get a deal done.
They ended up not signing a centre back at all, with Michael Keane, Yerry Mina and Mason Holgate relied upon as the central defenders for the first half of the season.
Now, Rodon is a target, having impressed in the Championship over the last 18 months after coming up through the Swansea ranks.
The 22-year-old joined Swansea at the age of eight after being a season ticket holder with the club, and his superb displays have seen him earn four caps for Wales.
Rodon stands at 6ft 4in tall, which is a great size for a centre back, whilst he has experience of playing out from the back having played for Graham Potter and now Steve Cooper at Swansea.
Rodon may not make headlines, but he would be a fine addition for the future at Goodison Park, and dipping into the Championship to sign a talented international centre back may not be the worst idea to kickstart 2020 – but convincing Swansea to sell their homegrown star may not be easy.
