Everton are in contact with Roma regarding the signing of Alessandro Florenzi.
The versatile defender was on loan at Valencia last season and he’s not a key player for the Italian side.
Roma are likely to cash in on the player if a good offer comes in this summer.
According to Sky Sports Italy, Carlo Ancelotti has requested Everton to sign the defender as a competition for Seamus Coleman.
It will be interesting to see if Everton can agree on a fee with Roma now.
Considering the player’s situation at the club, the Italian giants are unlikely to deny him a move to the Premier League, provided there is a reasonable offer.
A move to Everton would be ideal for Florenzi right now. He would get to play for an ambitious club at a high level and he will also get to work with a world class manager like Carlo Ancelotti.
Florenzi could prove to be a very useful player for Everton next season.
The 29 year old can play as a right back or as a right winger. His versatility will be an added bonus for Ancelotti and his team.
Furthermore, he has the experience to adapt to the Premier League and make an immediate impact.
