Everton and Manchester United are reportedly still in talks over a move for Marcus Rojo to Goodison Park today.
As the Blues face a tough task of adding a central defender to their ranks before the close of business – and potentially selling Mason Holgate – attention has turned from Chris Smalling to Rojo.
Everton were linked with Rojo last summer but instead signed Yerry Mina from Barcelona.
Rojo joined Manchester United in 2014 after an impressive World Cup for Argentina in a deal worth around £16m, following a prolonged work permit issue thanks to pending legal wranglings from 2010 when Rojo was accused of assaulting his neighbour.
Injury troubles have also meant that Rojo has made less than 70 appearances for United in his five years at the club, but he still made it into his country’s 2018 World Cup squad, although they were beaten by France in the last 16.
Rojo can also play at left-back, as well as his more commonly associated centre half position.
