Everton are keen to snap up Newcastle captain Jamaal Lascelles, according to the Mirror reporter Adrian Kajumba.

Both us and Chelsea are believed to be monitoring the defender as well, but the Toffees are said to the team keenest to make a move for the centre-back by preparing a £25m offer.

The 24-year-old has been a stand-out figure in Rafa Benitez’s side this season, and his defensive qualities will no doubt have gained the attention of other clubs.

We could be thinking of Lascelles as a potential replacement for Toby Alderweireld, with the Belgian having failed to agree on a new contract to stay with us.

Everton’s interest could complicate things, although it must be said the defender would be reluctant to leave the Magpies unless an offer comes in he can simply not refuse.

Newcastle have conceded 47 goals in 37 games this campaign, which is the seventh-best defensive record in the Premier League.

  • In some parallel universe it may be that Everton and Spuds are bigger clubs but as we’re living in this one this article is just pure drivel/clickbait

  • This guy is quality and could play for almost anybody, I can’t see him going to Chelsea, besides he is English so would not fit their profile. It should be a no contest between us and Everton in any transfer battle, what can they offer that we can’t better.
