Everton fans have been discussing a move for Aleksandar Dragovic, and they’re completely split on a move for the Austrian defender.
According to the Leicester Mercury, Dragovic “held talks” with Everton this week.
The versatile defender spent last season on loan with Leicester, where he made 11 Premier League appearances.
The 27 year-old can play as a centre back or right back, but is at his best in the heart of the defence. He has 65 caps for Austria.

The Toffees definitely need to strengthen at centre back this summer, with Ashley Williams expected to leave, and Dragovic showed glimpses of brilliance during his time at the King Power Stadium.
His parent club, Bayer Leverkusen, are thought to be considering cashing in on the defender this summer, so the Toffees could potentially secure him on a permanent basis.
Fans aren’t too convinced by the links though, as the defender was in and out of the team at Leicester.

Barely played at Leicester last season. No chance.

Dragovic was a really top prospect at Centre back when he was at Basel. Since then his career has stalled and at 27, i think we should look else where and younger

Stood out in games against us Kiev in Europa under Martinez. Beast of a man and a tidy left foot

Leicester fans really want this lad, was class for them but Puel preferred Morgan when he got fit.
