Everton were interested in Davide Calabria in January

Everton fans will know plenty needs to be sorted out at their club before they achieve any of the ambitious aims they have at Goodison Park.

One of the problem areas that Marco Silva has is in the right-back department, with the likes of Seamus Coleman and Jonjoe Kenny failing to impress this season.

However, it appears the club looked to make an addition in January by identifying an impressive Serie A enforcer.

What’s the News?

According to a report by Milan News, Davide Calabria was on the Toffees’ radar in the January transfer window, with the Premier League allegedly seeking more information about the AC Milan player.

However, it is also claimed that they were not the only top-flight club from England to hold an interest in the 22-year-old, with Manchester United also believed to have been keen on the player.

The Verdict:

Everton have had serious issues across the pitch this season, whether it be in the attacking areas or at the back and fans will want to see improvements in the summer, potentially through player acquisitions.

There is no suggestion as to whether Silva and Everton will make an attempt to sign Calabria in the summer, although they could do so with their problems in the right-back position hardly having been solved.

As mentioned, both Coleman and Kenny have not played anywhere near as well as they are and there will be doubts that they can ever reach their best once again.

However, they could find it difficult to prise him away from the Serie A as Milan rate their 22-year-old extremely highly and see him as an important part of their future after impressing in Gennaro Gattuso’s first-team this season.

With Manchester United also understood to be interested, Everton fans may not be holding their breath over bringing Calabria to Goodison Park.
