Everton lodge enquiry over deal to sign Ligue 1 defender

  Everton lodge enquiry over deal to sign Ligue 1 defender Everton have reportedly lodged an enquiry over a deal to sign Ramy Bensebaïni from Rennes this summer. The Toffees are out to add more defensive quality to the ranks ahead of next season and according to claims from France, as reported by GFFN, Bensebaïni has emerged as a target. Twitter: Everton & Stuttgart have made enquiries for Rennes defender Ramy Bensebaïni https://t.co/PzwouL8hbC (@GFFN) It’s believed that, along with Everton, Bundesliga outfit Stuttgart have also expressed an interest in signing the defender, who enjoyed a good season in Ligue 1 last term. The 23-year-old has often been lauded for his ability to play in a range of different positions across the back four but is widely perceived as a central defender. Bensebaïni made 29 appearances in Ligue 1 last season and impressed many with his displays, with Everton evidently being among those keen. The Toffees have not yet made a summer signing, but it seems they are focusing on defensive additions at this moment in time, with reports indicating that they will also submit a bid to sign Kieran Tierney from Celtic.

Tottenham will rival Everton for the signature of Domagoj Vida as Mauricio Pochettino’s men reportedly lodge a €18 million bid for the player.

Reports in Turkey from Aspor claim that Spurs have entered the running to sign the Croatian defender, who has enjoyed an impressive World Cup campaign.

This report follows claims that Everton themselves were readying a €15 million move for the player.

Besiktas have made it clear that they are hoping to receive closer to €30 million following his performances in Russia.

Local rivals Liverpool had also previously been credited with some interest in the player, although those claims have since been dismissed.

Everton close to sealing deal for Algerian defender

  Everton close to sealing deal for Algerian defender Everton are reportedly close to sealing a £13.5m deal for Algeria international Ramy Bensebaini, according to the Daily Star. The Daily Star is reporting that a source close to the player has informed them that the Toffees are edging ever closer to securing Bensebaini’s services. Bensebaini is expected to leave his current club Rennes this summer, despite being under contract until 2020. Everton are favourites to secure the 23-year-old centre-back’s services, however he is also attracting strong interest from Stuttgart. The Bundesliga outfit have also apparently approached Rennes about the defender’s availability. Everton boss Marco Silva is keen to add some youth into his squad this summer and Bensebaini would certainly prove a good addition for the Toffees. As well as his preferred role in central defence, Bensebaini can also operate at left-back or in defensive midfield and he would become Everton’s first signing of the summer if they were to get a deal over the line.

However, Anderson does claim that the Frenchman wants out of the Nou Camp after failing to break into the side. The Toffees are reporteldy in contact with Barcelona over a move for the French international. Digne earned a move to Barcelona to provide competition for Jordi Alba after impressing on loan at Roma. The defender made the move from Paris Saint-Germain in 2016 but has been limited to just 29 league appearances since. Everton have been linked with a double swoop for both Digne and Yerry Mina, with the Colombian defender looking set to leave Barcelona. The latter impressed at the World Cup and has drawn links to Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal in recent weeks.
