Everton plan bid for Udinese defender Rodrigo Becao

Everton are likely to make a move for Udinese defender Rodrigo Becao.

The centre-back was linked to the club in the summer, but no transfer materialized.

Per Tutto Udinese, the 26-year-old is stalling on signing a new contract at the club, as he wants to move to the Premier League.

The source added that Everton are willing to spend up to €15 million to sign Becao.

However, Udinese will want more money, as they want to make a substantial profit on a player they bought for a reported fee of £5.4 million in 2019.

Everton are under financial constraints at present, as they have not been balancing their budgets over the past few years.
