Everton have been frustratingly quiet this summer in regards to their transfer activity, however, it appears they could be on the verge of making a huge signing.
The Toffees brought in Marco Silva to replace Sam Allardyce after a rather disappointing Premier League campaign, which had in fact started with Ronald Koeman in charge at Goodison Park.
The former Watford boss will be aware of the expectation that the club ought to be challenging for a place in European football next season, rather than fighting for their lives once again.
Transfer activity has been lacking on Merseyside for the Toffees so far, with Wayne Rooney departing the club for the MLS as one of their more notable dealings, however, reports are starting to suggest they could be about to bring a huge name to the club.
The defender, who only joined the Spanish giants six months ago, has found it difficult to break into the first-team and could be about to head to the Premier League and try his luck there.
The Colombia international would immediately become a key player for the Toffees in an ageing defence and would become one of their most important men.
The 23-year-old had a World Cup to remember for his nation this summer and his performances will have put him in the window for potential buyers, with Everton a club who could benefit most from his services.
