Aurelio Buta a ‘priority’
First up, Everton look to be eyeing a move for a right-back.
Aurelio Buta has spent the last three years plying his trade with Belgian outfit, Antwerp.
In that time the 24-year-old has made 110 appearances, scoring two and assisting 20 along the way.
And now, according to the Daily Mail citing the Sun, Everton are preparing to make a move for Buta.
Buta, who has just one year left on his current contract, impressed Everton scouts last season and Rafa Benitez has made him one of Everton’s primary targets this summer.
No potential fee is mentioned in the report, but given he is not playing in one of Europe’s top five leagues and does not have much time to run on his contract, it is hard to see Buta costing too much.
