Even though Everton fans are enjoying a good season a few in the Transfer Tavern are bemoaning the bad luck that has struck their team at a crucial stage of the season.
The Toffees moved level on points with Arsenal on the weekend as they beat Leicester 4-2, albeit the Gunners have three games in hand.
While Everton have the Premier League’s top scorer in Romelu Lukaku in red-hot form, the Merseysiders are without a number of key players through injury, with Seamus Coleman a notable absentee.
The Republic of Ireland international suffered a double leg-break while playing for his country recently that could see him miss the rest of 2017 as he battles to recover.
Youngster Mason Holgate has stepped in well, but the Mirror claim the club are looking to draft in a player to fill the void, with Spurs’ Kieran Trippier a target.
The 26-year-old is currently behind Kyle Walker in the pecking order at White Hart Lane, but has impressed whenever he’s been called upon following his 2015 move to the London side from Burnley.
It’s understood that Trippier will cost Everton around £5m – £6m should Spurs opt to sell.
Kieran Trippier is too good to be Spurs’ back-up right-back – agree?
