Everton set to wrap up defender deal
Everton are in pole position to wrap up a deal for Argentinian defender Ramiro Funes Mori after agreeing a £5m fee for the River Plate centre-back.
Reports say that Everton head scout Kevin Reeves has been in Argentina and has recommended the defender be signed quickly, but Villarreal are also interested in signing the 24 year old.
The left footer has one cap for Argentina and is known to be a threat from set pieces and helped his club win the Copa Libertadores this season scoring in the final.
The club are also in advanced talks with Ukrainian winger Andriy Yarmolenko.
If Mori signs will the club still need another centre-back?
