Toffees boss Roberto Martinez will be keeping an eye on the right-back as he is believed to still be keen on adding more defensive players into his squad.

He also recently completed a deal to sign centre-back Ramiro Funes Mori from Argentine outfits River Plate during the summer for £9.5million.

However, Martinez is now likely to be preparing his side for the upcoming Merseyside derby clash with Liverpool before facing Manchester United in the following fixture.
