Everton given price for Swiss centre-back Lacroix

Everton are lining up Switzerland international centre-back Leo Lacroix.

The Toffees are looking to bolster their defensive stocks as Michael Keane and Ashley Williams have struggled this season.

And with Phil Jagielka and Ruben Funes-Mori still working their way back from injury, The Sun claim Everton want to sign 26-year-old Lacroix.

The former Sion man is currently on loan at Basel from St. Etienne, but will be available for £7.5m in the summer.

Brighton are also reportedly interested in Lacroix, who has two caps for his country.
