The Toffees appear to have a genuine interest in signing Fabiano Parisi this winter.
Reports in the British media claim that Everton have joined the hunt for Empoli left-back Fabiano Parisi.
The 22-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The Italy international joined Empoli from Avellino for a fee in the region of 450,000 euros in September 2020. His contract expires in the summer of 2025.
He has two goals in 14 Serie A games this season.
The 22-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in Italy. Parisi has represented Italy at Under-21 level, winning seven caps.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Everton.
The Everton manager is in the market for a new left-back and Lampard sees Parisi as the perfect addition to his defense.
Frank Lampard is a firm fan of Empoli left-back and Everton could make a move for the player if the financial aspect makes sense.
The Toffees are desperate to make an impact in the winter transfer window.
Fabiano Parisi is a skilled left-back who can make a difference at both ends of the pitch. The former Avellino man will add a new dimension to Everton’s defense.
According to the report, “Empoli fullback Fabiano Parisi is interesting Everton. La Stampa says the Blues are one of several clubs who are showing an interest in the 22-year-old but they face serious competition from Torino and Wolfsburg for his signature. Everton are looking to strengthen their squad in January as Frank Lampard looks to move his inconsistent side further up the table and away from a repeat of last season’s nervy relegation battle.”
