Everton are expected to make an improved offer for Swansea’s Ashley Williams.
Ronald Koeman is keen to add some depth and experience to Everton’s defence with Jagielka missing pre-season through injury and uncertainty surrounding the future of John Stones.
Everton were hopeful of signing the 31-year-old for £10m earlier this week only for Swansea to announce they had “turned down the offer currently on the table”.
Koeman: “We’re working hard to bring in good players. It’s not respectful to talk about players who are not players of Everton, but we hope to bring some new players in as soon as possible.”
