Everton keen on signing West Ham’s South American target

Everton appear to be interested in signing centre back Matheus Jesus, who was previously a target of West Ham.

The Toffees have so far had an underwhelming season and currently sit in 15th position on the standings after taking just 11 points from their opening 11 League games.

Their defence in particular, has come under scathing criticism and on a worrying note, bottom of the table Crystal Palace are the only club that has conceded more goals than the Toffees so far this season.

Ashley Williams and Phil Jagielka appear to be past their prime while Michael Keane has not yet settled into life at the club.

The Merseyside club will be hoping that Jesus can bolster their backline and boost their fortunes going forward.

Jesus has been valued at around £7 million which is very affordable for a Premier League club. The youngster is also able to play in defensive midfield and is renowned for his flair.
