Online media are today reporting that Everton are set to bid for ex-Tottenham defender Vedran Corluka. The 28 year old currently plies his trade at Russian team Lokomotiv Moscow but it is thought a bid of around 4 million pounds could tempt the club to sell. The Croatian centre back is highly regarded in the Premier League after successful spells at Manchester City and Tottenham and has been a regular for both club and country.
Corluka would likely fit into Everton as he is the passing style of defender that Roberto Martinez looks for. However, Martinez has repeatedly stated he has no current need to strengthen his defence so it remains to be seen whether this rumour will come to fruition.
