Everton set to move for £25m Boro defender
Everton are set to make a £25m move for Middlesbrough defender Ben Gibson according to The Gazette Live.
The toffeemen are looking to revamp an ageing back four ad Gibson is one of a number of names being linked with the club with a new manager and new director of football due to start later this week.
Marcel Brands starts his new role of Director of Football on Friday and is expected to be joined by Marco Silva as head coach.
Everton defender Ramiro Funes Mori is rumoured to be close to leaving the club and there are doubts over the long term futures of veteran defenders Phil Jagielka and Ashley Williams.
25 year old Gibson enjoyed another fine season as his Boro team missed out on a place in the Premier League in the Championship Play off semi finals.
Would Gibson be a good signing for Everton?
