Rojo is unwanted at Manchester United and it is no surprise that the Red Devils have agreed to sell him. The Old Trafford outfit have signed Harry Maguire this summer and Rojo has fallen further down the pecking order.
Everton could use another centre back and Rojo might prove to be a useful addition.
He can play as a left-back as well and versatility will be a bonus for the Merseyside outfit.
Rojo will look to kick-start his career at Goodison Park now. The Argentine defender will want to play regular first-team football and it will be interesting to see if he can hold down a starting berth next season.
He has played in the Premier League for a while now and therefore he should be able to make an immediate impact.
Everton tried to sign the likes of Zouma and Tomori this summer but Chelsea are unwilling to sell them.
It seems that Rojo is the backup target for Silva.
