Tomori? Everton boss Ancelotti admits 'we're looking for centre-back'

Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti admits he needs to find a new centre-half signing.

Ancelotti says he is looking for a centre-back after recent injuries to Mason Holgate and Jarrad Branthwaite.

With Holgate out for "at least two to three months" with a toe problem and Branthwaite sidelined for "three to five weeks" with an ankle injury, Michael Keane and Yerry Mina are the only fit centre-backs.

Ancelotti would not be drawn on interest in Chelsea's Fikayo Tomori today.

However, he said: "We are looking for a centre-back and we are looking if the market offers something."
