Everton odds on favourites to sign a rock of a player
Everton had a largely decent season in defence last time out but they may well be looking to add at least one extra defender for the squad this summer.
Although Roberto Martinez really needs to concentrate mainly on the forward areas, having lost Deulofeu and potentially Lukaku, he will also want to make Everton even harder to break down next season.
And we think that of all the defender names being mentioned in the summer transfer market Everton would struggle to do any better than signing Steven Caulker from Cardiff.
Unfortunately for his current club the player seems way too good for The Championship and there will be several suitors for his signature this summer.
But Everton fans may be pleased to hear that that their club is currently favourite to sign the player, if he does move one this summer, at odds of 1/3 with SkyBet.
We found it strange that Tottenham saw fit to sell him in the first place. He looks like a defender who is definitely going to be in and around the England squad for the next decade.
At 22 he’s already very reliable, composed but also has the mobility and speed that comes with youth.
He’s also dangerous from set pieces and we think he’s be tailor-made for this exciting Everton side under Martinez.
Let’s take a look at him in action. Everton fans: keen to beat your rivals to his signature?
