Everton would do very well to pull of this transfer, with Lascelles appearing to be off-limits with the Newcastle Chronicle reporting that Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez is looking to build his squad around the 24-year-old.
Benitez said: “We don’t want to sell him. He was a key player for us last year and he has to be this year and for a long time to come in the future.
“The reality is that we don’t want to sell Jamaal. He is a key player for us and leader. We are happy with him.”
