The Italian coach sees the Manchester City ace as a cheaper alternative to Chelsea‘s Kurt Zouma and Aston Villa’s Tyrone Mings.

Adarabioyo who can also play at right-back has just 12-months left on his current deal with Cityzen are keen on the defender to sign a new deal so that he can push first-team place next season.

Manchester City have a lot of depth at center-back right now following the arrival of Nathan Ake. So it would be a little surprise if a potential move to Goodison Park appealed to Adarabioyo.

Adarabioyo is yet to make his Premier League debut for Pep Guardiola’s men. But he has demonstrated his potential out on loan, having spent time with West Bromwich Albion and Blackburn Rovers.

Should Everton sign Adarabioyo, he’d join Super Eagles playmaker Iwobi and Dennis Adeniran at Goodison Park.
