Ancelotti wants to build a 'little Colombia' at Everton

Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti wants to a build a 'little Colombia' at Goodison Park.

With the Blues having already landed Yerry Mina from Barcelona last season, Ancelotti now has in his sights two of his Colombia teammates.

AS says Ancelotti is confident he can convince James Rodriguez about leaving Real Madrid for Merseyside this summer. The pair enjoy a good relationship, having worked together at both Real and Bayern Munich.

The Italian is also keen on Atletico Madrid fullback Santiago Arias.

Arias is rated highly by Everton chief Marcel Brands, who signed him for PSV Eindhoven. And the Colombia fullback would welcome a reunion, after finding himself frozen out at Atletico over the past 12 months.
