With so much talk surrounding John Stones for the past year or so, it’s no wonder that everyone other than our Everton fans in the Transfer Tavern forgot they do in fact have some other defenders. 

Well, everyone other than the eagle eyed Ed Woodward of course…

The Red Devils chief executive is reportedly ready to move for Stones’ teammate and much less heralded Ramiro Funes Mori, according to Italian outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi.

It is claimed that United have joined Serie A giants Lazio in casting a watchful eye over the Argentine, after impressing in his first season on Merseyside.

They suggest that the Toffees value the former River Plate man at around €15m, having brought him to Goodison Park for a fee of £9.5m last summer.

The fiery South American was sent off against arch rivals Liverpool in the Merseyside derby, though has often proved a formidable defender during this campaign.

Would Funes Mori be a decent squad option at Old Trafford?
