A surprise summer swoop for Inter Milan defender Diego Godin is reportedly prepared by Everton.
The former boss of Chelsea is believed to be willing to listen to offers for the centre-back when the transfer window opens again and Everton boss Ancelotti sees him as a ‘viable option’ as he looks to strengthen his squad.
Since moving from Atletico Madrid to the San Siro last summer, Godin, 34, made 16 Series A appearances this season.
Meanwhile, Jean-Philippe Gbamin had been hampered by two separate quad tears that he picked up in August before suffering his new training setback.
On Thursday, after news that he was ruled out for another six months with an Achilles injury, the Toffees were dealt a huge blow.
