Everton are reportedly linked with a move for Celtic centre-back Kristoffer Ajer.
According to 90min (posted via @ToffeeTVEFC), the Blues are just one of several clubs in the race to sign the Norwegian powerhouse. Leicester, Manchester City and Wolves are also eyeing up a move for Ajer, along with European giants Paris Saint-Germain, Borussia Dortmund and AC Milan.
Should Everton sign 6'6 defender Kristoffer Ajer?
The 22-year-old centre-back stands at a colossal 6 ft 6 and has started all but two matches in the Scottish Premiership this season. As well as contributing to 13 clean sheets in the league, Ajer has also racked up two assists and scored three goals for himself (via Transfermarkt).
Plenty of Everton fans have given their opinion on the club’s transfer links with the Celtic defender and many are already set on signing him this summer. One Blue has described Ajer as an ‘absolute monster’ whilst another supporter thinks the club ‘should’ve signed him last season’.

Thought we should’ve signed him last season and he’s the type of player we should be aiming for.
I think he’s decent on the ball too; fairly sure he’s played a few games in midfield for Celtic, bit like Holgate has.

If Everton think he’s good enough, yes

If Ancelotti wants him. Trust the manager!

Looks slower than he actually is. Brilliant on the ball, positional awareness is great and really good in the air. Biggest up side though is how he is as a person. Modest, hard working and a leader. Been following him since he broke into the Norwegian top flight age 16. Sign 🙂
