Three reasons Everton are right to target Dendoncker over Tielemans

According to reports in The Sun, Everton are reportedly ready to step up their interest in highly-rated Anderlecht midfielder Leander Dendoncker this summer.

The 22-year-old has enjoyed an impressive season for the Belgian outfit alongside another in-demand player – Youri Tielemans – in the middle of the park, and is rated at £12m by his club.

Ronald Koeman is keen to significantly strengthen his team at the end of the season as he looks to turn them into top four contenders, while he will also have the extra fixtures to deal with after the Merseyside outfit qualified for the Europa League.

The Dutchman is said to have sent a scout to watch Dendoncker in his team’s 2-0 win against Zulte Waregem on Sunday, which moved Anderlecht a step closer to winning their first league title since 2014.

The Toffees have also been linked with Tielemans over the course of the last couple of months with the 20-year-old scoring an impressive 18 goals in all competitions this term.
