There has been numerous left-backs linked with Everton in past few months.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Everton are set to sign Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney.

The Scotland international has five years left on his current contract which expires in 2023.
Tierney made 130 appearances across all competitions for Celtic, scoring seven goals and supplying 31 assists in return.
He’s incredibly experienced for a 21-year-old and still has tons of room for growth.
Kieran Tierney has represented Scotland at Under-18 and Under-19 level, winning five caps and scoring one goal, before making his senior international debut in March 2016. As a member of Scotland national football team, Tierney won nine caps.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Everton.
Marco Silva wants to sign a new left-back and Kieran Tierney is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.
The report claims that Everton manager has extensively scouted Kieran Tierney and is considering a move for the left-back.
Everton will be desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.
His tricky dribbling, fantastic shot and pace make him a nightmare for any defender to defend.
According to The Sun (via The Telegraph), “Everton boss Marco Silva wants Celtic ace Kieran Tierney as a long-term replacement for Leighton Baines, according to reports. The Toffees are braced to launch an initial £25million offer but the Scottish champions are almost certain to reject their opening bid. According to the Telegraph, Silva is working hard behind the scenes to transform his squad ahead of a busy pre-season. Signing new defenders remains his top priority with centre-backs high up on the list. But Baines will be 34 by the end of the year and Everton want a young talent who can fill his boots.”
