Really? Everton prepared to sell Holgate

Everton are prepared to sell Mason Holgate this summer, it is being claimed.

Football Insider reports Everton are willing to sell defender Holgate in order to sign Kalidou Koulibaly.

The Blues are keen to bring the Napoli centre-back to Goodison Park, and are weighing up the idea of selling Holgate to raise funds for the deal.

Holgate only signed a five-year contract at Everton in March last year, which runs until the summer of 2025.

However, the report goes on to say that Carlo Ancelotti sees Koulibaly as his top transfer target, and is not totally convinced of Holgate's abilities, despite being an admirer of his versatility.
