Everton have reportedly ‘joined the race’ to sign Inter Milan central defender Stefan de Vrij. 

The 29-year-old has been indexed to numerous clubs as the ace’s agents attempt to find a new home for his client. 

Having recently been offered to newly mega-rich Newcastle United, the Toffees are believed to have shown their interest. 

That’s according to a report from 90Min, as cited by RumorsTransfersNews24/7 on Twitter. 

The report claims that the 54-cap Holland international has also attracted the attention of Tottenham. 

So far this season De Vrij, who was described as a ‘top defender’ by Kees Kwakman, has scored once in 15 appearances in all competitions for I Nerazzurri

Valued at £45million and under contract in Milan until 2023 (Transfermarkt), signing the experienced Dutchman would likely remain an expensive venture. 

A vastly experienced operator, De Vrij has amassed 413 career club outings across spells with Feyenoord, Lazio and Inter. 

At present Rafa Benitez has Ben Godfrey, Yerry Mina, Michael Keane and Mason Holgate at his disposal – leaving plenty of space for a defender of the quality of the Dutch ace.
