Everton look at £15million English defender

Everton are set to bid for Crystal Palace defender Scott Dann.

That’s according to the Mirror, who believe the Toffees will once again attempt to sign the English centre-back, after trying to secure his signature just 12 months before.

Instead, Dann signed a new 5-year-deal to stay at Selhurst Park, but is back of Everton’s radar after their bid for Swansea defender Ashley Williams was turned down.

With the 29-year-old tied down until 2020, he may cost Ronald Koeman £15million to bring to Goodison Park, as he looks to build on his new squad. He may be needed to replace John Stones, who is expected to move to Manchester City.

Dann played in 35 Premier League games last year, scoring 5 goals, and started their FA Cup final defeat to Manchester United, but was forced to hobble off just before extra-time with an ankle injury.

But he could be in an Everton shirt next season, should they turn their attentions away from Ashley Williams.
