Everton linked with loan move for Fikayo Tomori

Everton linked with a loan deal for Chelsea’s Fikayo Tomori as the Toffees’ seek defensive cover.

Reports suggest Carlo Ancelloti is looking at 22-year-old Tomori to strengthen Everton’s defence. A Mason Holgate injury has forced the Toffees to seek defensive cover.

On the other hand, Chelsea is looking to balance the books. Chelsea has begun trimming their squad size after a few major arrivals.

What Tomori can add to Everton

He will provide needed depth to an Everton backline short on options. Tomori is capable of challenging Yerry Mina and Michael Keane for a place in Everton’s line up.

He is very strong in the tackle and good at intercepting the ball from the opposition. A good passer of the ball and Tomori likes to play short passes from the back. Key traits that can help Everton initiate play from the back.

Why Everton is a good fit for Tomori

The centre-back has slid further down the pecking order after the arrival of Thiago Silva from PSG on a free transfer.

At 22, the centre-back needs game time if he is to progress and kick on with his club career. Tomori’s stock is still high with manager Frank Lampard who views him as one for the future.

Playing for a manager of Ancelloti’s quality would do wonders for the young Englishman’s game. The Italian has managed some of the top centre-backs in the game during his time as a manager.

Everton is a well know club for developing young talent and having faith in their young players. Tomori will have the perfect stage at Goodison park to prove to his parent club he still has a future at Chelsea.

Both sides are interested in a deal and it looks a matter of time before Tomori will be in an Everton jersey.
