Everton to lose out on John Stones replacement to European club

martinezzzzEverton fans in the Football Transfer Tavern seem to be nervous heading into this summer’s transfer window as reports suggest they are set to lose out on their leading target.

According to Sky Sports Italia via Turkish Football, Besiktas are to swoop in and sign Everton target and AC Milan’s out of favour defender Christian Zapata.

The Turkish giants are reportedly set to offer Zapata a three-year deal worth a total of €10 million, including bonuses.

Zapata is supposedly one of Roberto Martinez’s targets if they lose John Stones in the transfer window, but Martinez won’t move for Zapata unless he is confident he cannot keep hold of Stones.

The 29-year-old is a suitable target for the Toffees who have leaked goals this season as he is Columbia international with 40 caps to his name.

Our landlord here in the Tavern feels losing Stones would be a major blow for the Toffees, and says it is essential the club replace him if the young defender leaves.

Everton fans. Would you like to see Roberto Martinez make a move for him regardless as to whether or not you lose John Stones? Let us know your thoughts below!
