Everton are in talks with AC Milan over a potential transfer for Gustavo Gomez.

Everton have sent representatives including Director of Football Steve Walsh to discuss players from both AC and Inter Milan – multiple names have been suggested as transfer probabilities including M’Baye Niang and Gianluca Lapadula but Gustavo Gomez is reported to be a significant transfer target according to Calciomercato.

The Paraguay international, joined AC Milan in a £7m switch from Argentinian side CA Lanus last summer. When the transfer was completed, Lanus president Nicolas Russo was also quick to praise the centre-back, telling Tuttomercatoweb (h/t Football Italia):

“Without a shadow of a doubt he is ready for this step up. Gustavo is an extraordinary player, very strong and certainly ready to face this new adventure. His greatest strengths are in the air and in challenges. Gomez has a winning mentality and will be Milan’s first choice defender for the next 10 years. … I can confirm that Milan, Fiorentina and several Premier League clubs wanted him”.
