Vida interest from Everton growing
Everton are believed to be considering a swoop to sign Besiktas centre-back Domagoj Vida, according to reports in Turkey.
The 29-year-old Croatia international saw his stock rise at the World Cup in Russia last year and now teams in the Premier League are thought to be keen on landing the physical defender.
Everton are reported to be one of the frontrunners to land Vida but they will face stern competition, with West Ham also believed to be interested in securing the player's services.
Reports in Turkey suggest Besiktas would be willing to listen to offers over £10m and Everton could take this opportunity to bolster their options at the back for the remainder of the season.
