Everton Targets Chelsea's Fikayo Tomori As EPL Club Is Hit With New Injury Blow

Everton Targets Chelsea's Fikayo Tomori As EPL Club Is Hit W

Everton manager, Carlo Ancelotti says they may have to sign another central defender after Jarrad Branthwaite sustained an ankle injury in Wednesday's 3-0 League Cup win over Salford City.

The 18-year-old was substituted in the 24th minute of the second round encounter and, with fellow defender Mason Holgate also out injured, Italian Ancelotti has only two fit senior center-backs in Yerry Mina and Michael Keane.

"Holgate is out and Jarrad we don't know his injury and how bad it is, we have to look," Ancelotti told reporters.

"There is a possibility to find a center back and I think we have to.

"The Holgate update is that he doesn't need the surgery so maybe he can recover earlier than normal, but I think we can manage until Mason comes back with three center-backs no problem," he added.

The Italian coach also was happy with his side 3-0 win of the match.

Media reports said Everton were targeting a loan move for Chelsea's Fikayo Tomori before the transfer window shuts on October 5.

Tomori has already fallen down the pecking order especially with Thiago Silva signing. He also has Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen, Kurt Zouma ahead of him -  a little loan time at the Goodison Park won't hurt. 

Everton, who beat Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 in their Premier League opener, host West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.
