Everton will look to sign Luke Shaw
Everton appear to have a genuine interest in signing Luke Shaw this summer.
The reports in England suggested that Everton will look to sign Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw.
The 22-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The England international was signed by Manchester United in July 2014 from Southampton for a fee in the region of 38 million euros. The 22-year-old has a contract until 2019 with the club.
Since his arrival from Southampton, Shaw has provided only three assists in 63 games for Manchester United.
The 22-year-old is considered to be one of the best left-backs in England.
Luke Shaw has represented England at Under-16, Under-17 and Under-21 level, winning 19 caps and scoring two goals, before making his senior international debut in March 2014. As a member of England national football team, Shaw won seven caps.
Luke Shaw is one of the more likely players to be offloaded by Manchester United this summer and the list of suitors in the England international continues to grow.
Adding a left-back remains Everton’s top priority this summer and Sam Allardyce will have drafted a shortlist of a number of possible targets he could approach in the coming weeks.
According to The Sun (via ESPN), “After returning from a broken leg, Shaw has failed to establish himself as a first-team regular at Old Trafford. And according to ESPN, the Toffees sent scouts to watch him in action against the Seagulls – although they only got 45 minutes from their troubles. Leighton Baines, 33, has missed large chunks of this season – forcing Sam Allardyce to use Cuco Martina as a makeshift left-back. And with the England international’s advancing years, Goodison bosses are looking for a long-term replacement.”

Manchester United are preparing to sell their left-back should they receive a massive offer for him.
The England international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of defensive player Sam Allardyce wants to target in the summer transfer window.
A move to Everton is exactly what Luke Shaw needs to reignite his career, and we hope he is able to do just that.
