Everton target deal for Swansea star

Everton have turned their attention to Swansea City captain Ashley Williams and want to land the Wales international this summer, according to The Mirror.

The Toffees are facing uncertainty over the future of John Stones, with the gifted centre-half said to be on Pep Guardiola’s wish list at Manchester City.

If the England international does make a switch to the Etihad Stadium as expected, it leave Ronald Koeman short of options at the heart of his rearguard for next season.

Williams has been a driving force in Swansea’s success since their promotion to the Premier League and as a result has been linked with a move away from the Liberty Stadium on plenty of occasions.

The no-nonsense enforcer was part of the Wales side that progressed to the semi-finals of Euro 2016 and has a wealth of Premier League experience – but Swansea are surely keen to hold onto their skipper and talisman.
