Everton could solve their issues at right-back this summer as they eye up a move for Diogo Dalot.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Everton are set to sign Manchester United right-back Diogo Dalot.
The 21-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The Portugal international was signed by Manchester United in July 2018 from Porto for a fee of 22 million euros. The 21-year-old has a contract until 2023 with the club.
The right-back has banged in one goal in 11 matches for Manchester United this term on all fronts.
The 21-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in Portugal.
Dalot has represented Portugal at Under-15, Under-16, Under-17, Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level, winning 58 caps and scoring 2 goals.
The Portugal international is one of the more likely players to be offloaded by United this summer and the list of suitors in the Portugal international continues to grow.
Carlo Ancelotti is looking to shore up his defensive options and Manchester United’s Dalot happens to be a target.
The Portugal international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of defensive player Ancelotti wants to target in the summer transfer window.
Everton are desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.
The 21-year-old will offer the Everton boss the freedom to be more flexible with his formations, tactics and team selections.
According to the report, “Everton are interested in signing Manchester United right-back Diogo Dalot. The youngster has struggled for game time since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over as manager. Injuries and a lack of form have meant the Portuguese has slipped down the pecking order at Old Trafford. And the Mirror says the 21-year-old has impressed Carlo Ancelotti. The Everton manager wants to make a move this summer, and the player would likely cost in the region of £10 million. Dalot would be a long term replacement for Seamus Coleman, and would be eased into first team duties in the coming season.”

If Everton can agree on a fee with Manchester United, the deal should be easy to complete.
Good signing for Everton?
Everton in particular need to sort out a right-back for the next season and the 21-year-old could be a solid signing for them.
It is smart from the club to invest in younger players, rather than splashing out big money on experienced players with no resale value.
A move to Everton is exactly what Diogo Dalot needs to reignite his career, and we hope he is able to do just that.
It will be interesting to see if Everton are willing to pay the asking price for Dalot.
