Lots of Everton fans have been pleased by a transfer link to Manchester City ace Tosin Adarabioyo as the Sunday Mirror (via Daily Express) reported that Carlo Ancelotti is weighing up a move for him in the summer window.
As per the outlet, the central defender could be targeted if he misses out on the signings of Aston Villa man Tyrone Mings and Chelsea centre-back Kurt Zouma.
Adarabioyo has emerged as a cheaper option for the Goodison Park faithful to both Mings and Zouma, as he has entered the final year of his current deal at the Etihad Stadium.
Pep Guardiola may look to cash in on the academy graduate instead of giving him a new contract, meaning that the Toffees could pounce on his signature.
The 22-year old arguably still has a lot of potential and may even play ahead of the likes of fellow central defenders Mason Holgate, Michael Keane and Yerry Mina, having averaged more interceptions, passes and long balls with Blackburn Rovers on loan in the EFL Championship in the 2019/20 season, according to Whoscored.
Does Adarabioyo start for Everton?
Yes, there is a difference in quality between the Championship and the Premier League, but Adarabioyo could well make the step up and he still has room for improvement given his age.
These EFC supporters were pleased by the link to the Englishman on Twitter, with one Blue even labelling him as a ‘very good prospect’:
Very good prospect. Obviously want us to sign Gabriel but if we don't get him I'd much rather get this lad for cheap than pay 25+for Tyrone Mings. Isn't Mings basically the same player as Michael Keane 🤷♂️
