Everton are pondering a January move for Augsburg right-back Daniel Opare, according to The Sun.
Even though the Toffees do not have a permanent manager at Goodison Park, the club are still planning for the January transfer window.
The Sun claims that Augsburg are prepared to sell Opare before the end of the season due to the defender’s contract expiring next summer.
The 27-year-old has made it clear to the club that he does not intend to pen a fresh deal, so the German outfit would rather cut ties early in order to get a fee than allow the player to leave for nothing.
The report claims that Opare could cost just £2.5m, but numerous clubs including Watford, Stoke City and Sevilla have reportedly shown an interest.
It is no secret that the Merseyside outfit have had a horror show in defence this season.
In the Premier League, the team have conceded 28 goals and kept just one clean sheet.
Summer signing Michael Keane has failed to impress, while Ashley Williams has also come under criticism.
Right-back Seamus Coleman remains on the sidelines as he recovers from a broken leg, so with that in mind, Opare could be a good option.
The full-back can play on either side and if he is able to be bought for a cheap price, then it is worth Everton making a move.
