Frank Fabra could be a new long-term option at left-back for Everton

As reported by The Sun, Everton have sent scouts to South America to track the progress of Boca Juniors defender Frank Fabra.

What’s the story?

After another disappointing season in the English Premier League, the Toffees badly need to sign quality players in the summer transfer window, as they look to build a squad that can compete with the country’s top six teams.

One player on their radar is Colombian international Frank Fabra, according to The Sun.

The paper say Everton scout Martyn Glover was in Argentina last week to scout the defender playing for Boca Juniors.

The report goes on to state he would be available to the Toffees for around £7.5m.

Who is he?

Fabra has made over 50 appearances for Argentinian icons Boca Juniors since joining in 2016, scoring five goals and assisting eight times from left-back in that time.

With 17 caps for Colombia too, he’s on his way to the World Cup this summer where his value could increase if he has an impressive tournament.

Signing players from South America is always exciting and the fact he is a left-back who likes to dribble, has pace and loves to get forward would add extra intrigue if he ends up at Goodison Park.

Can Everton go outside of their regular transfer wheelhouse to land the 27-year-old?
