According to Sportsmail, Everton have been offered Atletico Madrid right-back Kieran Trippier ahead of the summer transfer window.
Manager Carlo Ancelotti wants to bolster the position ahead of the new season with Seamus Coleman already in the twilight of his career.
While the Toffees have been linked with Norwich City right-back Max Aarons, latest reports claim they no longer see the player as an option as he does not fit the profile they are looking for.
Everton are looking at other options, and it will be interesting to see whether they will attempt to land Trippier.
The England international left Tottenham Hotspur for Atletico in the summer of 2019, and he has since weighed in with 10 La Liga assists in 48 games.
The 30-year-old has been very crucial as Diego Simeone’s side look to win the Spanish top-flight, and it will come as a surprise if they indeed are open to letting him go.
While Atletico currently top the The League table with five games left, they could miss out on the title with Real Madrid and Barcelona breathing down their neck.
Nevertheless, they will be playing in the Champion League next season except they suffer a huge collapse in the coming weeks.
Swapping Atletico, where he is a regular starter for Everton is without a doubt a downgrade for Trippier, and the transfer rumour could be a ploy by his agent to lobby for a new deal.
