Everton are considering a move for Chelsea youngster Tino Anjorin, 90min understands.
The Toffees are looking to overhaul their squad after narrowly avoiding relegation from the Premier League last season, with midfield a particular area of concern.
As reported by 90minthe likes of Andre Gomes and Jean-Philippe Gbamin are among a number of midfielders the club would be willing to sell, while Fabian Delph has already departed after his contract expired.
Anjorin is one of the names being considered to bolster Everton’s midfield. 90min are told the Toffees are pushing for a permanent move but that Chelsea are trying to negotiate a loan deal, while Anjorin would be happy to move to Goodison Park.
The 20-year-old has 21 caps for England across various youth levels, scoring six goals, while he’s already picked up plenty of club experience during loan spells with the likes of Huddersfield Town and Lokomotiv Moscow.
Primarily an attacking midfielder, Anjorin is also capable of playing on either flank or as a No.8 and would add some much-needed creativity and mobility to Frank Lampard’s squad.
Anjorin is not the only option being considered in this position by Everton.
As reported by 90minthe Blues also had a bid turned down for Wolves’ Morgan Gibbs-White on Tuesday, though Everton are becoming increasingly confident they can get a deal across the line.
