British Sky Sports has revealed that young Chelsea defender Vicayo Tomori is close to moving during the current summer Mercato to Everton on loan until the end of the 2021/2020 season.
Everton will finalize the deal this week, with the 22-year-old on the verge of giving up joining Rennes, who negotiated with him several weeks ago.
Everton and entered into serious talks with Vicayo Tomori after failing to sign Brazilian defender Gabriel Magalhaes, who joined Arsenal from Lille in a deal worth 27 million pounds.
Everton is very active in the summer Mercato 2020, where he managed to sign three players in four days, led by Real Madrid star James Rodriguez and a Napoli midfielder (Alan Marquez), in addition to French midfielder Abdullah Doukuri from Watford.
Tovees coach Carlo Ancelotti wants to focus on consolidating the back line after he saw his team suffer from the defensive side last season, leaving only 5 clean sheets out of 21 games since his appointment in December 2019.
