Tosin Adarabioyo: Wanted by Everton

Everton are ahead in the race for Manchester City’s highly-rated young defender Tosin Adarabioyo, according to reports.

Adarabioyo’s contract talks with City have reportedly stalled, and the Daily Mail claims that the Toffees are ready to make a swoop.

If no agreement is found between Adarabioyo and City, he will be available on a free transfer at the end of the season, but the Sky Blues will be entitled to a compensation fee.

The 19-year-old’s current contract expires in the summer, and Ronald Koeman allegedly wants a deal sealed before the end of month.

However, Spurs, Celtic and Leicester are all said to be tracking Adarabioyo’s situation, and could also step up interest.
