Everton enter the battle to sign €25m-rated Serie A centre-back

Toffees are interested in signing Torino centre-back, Armando Izzo. However, a deal didn’t go through during the summer transfer window. Italy international joined Torino from Genoa last summer and has quickly established himself as one of the integral figures of their first-team squad.

Armando notched up 37 appearances in Serie A last term, and his consistent performances for the Italian club didn’t go unnoticed. However, Izzo stayed put at Torino and signed a new five-year contract. The 27-year-old centre-back has hit the ground running in the new season, scoring three goals in 16 matches across all tournaments.

With Italian defender continuing to impress at Torino, Toffees must rekindle their interest in him during the winter transfer window. With Everton facing a potential relegation battle, the time is right for the Portuguese manager to do something about it.

Marco Silva must turn things around quickly if he is to keep his job at Goodison Park. One position Portuguese coach must reinforce is the back-line, which has leaked 18 goals so far. Keane’s series of bad performances led to him being axed from the first-team, with Silva deploying Yerry Mina and Mason Holgate against Spurs.
