Everton are interested in signing want-away Southampton defender Jose Fonte according to The Daily Mirror
Fonte has been left out of Southampton’s squad for their EFL Cup semi-final against Liverpool after handing in a transfer request.
And according to the Mirror, his former Saints boss Ronald Koeman is keen to sign him in January. The report says Southampton want as much as £12m.
Fonte is now 33-years-old, meaning he would have little resale value if he was to move to Goodison Park.
Everton are currently in seventh place in the Premier League table, while Southampton are in 10th place.
