Everton were linked with a move for the Netherlands defender Denzel Dumfries earlier this summer.
Now Gazzetta dello Sport are reporting that the Toffees are set to meet with the player this week regarding a summer transfer.
The PSV Eindhoven defender had an impressive club campaign last year and he was outstanding for his country in the European Championships. He picked up two goals and an assist in four appearances during Euro 2020.
Apparently, the player is valued at €20 million and Rafa Benitez has asked the Merseyside club to sort out his signing this summer.
Inter Milan have been linked with the player in recent weeks as well but the Italian champions are reluctant to meet his asking price.
Meanwhile, SportMediaset believe that the Serie A champions have turned their attentions towards the Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin and Everton are now leading the chase for the 25-year-old.
The report also claims that the Dutch international will be heading to Everton this summer and things are quite advanced right now.
The Toffees need to bring in a quality long-term replacement for Seamus Coleman and the 25-year-old Dutch international seems like a quality fit.
He has proven himself to be a reliable defender over the past year and he has shown but he can contribute offensively as well.
Furthermore, the asking price seems quite reasonable for a player of his ability. Everton certainly have the means to afford him and they should look to wrap up the signing soon.
