Duvan Zapata and 11 other players linked with Everton ahead of summer

Everton continue to be linked with a host of potential new signings ahead of the summer transfer window.

The Blues will want to strengthen their squad when the window reopens at the end of the season, with attacking options surely a priority. However, it remains to be seen what players will be on the club's actual shortlist.

Since Sean Dyche's arrival, the rumours linking the club with potential new additions has not stopped - and the new Blues boss will almost certainly have begun looking at targets he would like to bring to Goodison Park for next season. Below is a list of the players who have been rumoured to be a target for Everton over the last few months.

Duvan Zapata

Atalanta striker Duvan Zapata was first linked with a move to Everton after the January transfer window closed.

Since then rumours have steadily emerged claiming that the Blues could sign the striker in the summer, but the reports seem tentative at this point.

Mohammed Kudus

Everton were first linked with a move for Ajax midfielder Mohammed Kudus last summer, and the rumours have not gone away.

However, since Frank Lampard’s exit and Sean Dyche’s arrival, rumours around Kudus and Everton seem to have quietened down somewhat.


Udinese forward Beto has frequently been credited as a possible target for Everton this summer.

Reports have claimed that a bid in the region of £20m has previously been submitted to sign the forward in January.

Boulaye Dia

Villarreal striker Boulaye Dia, who is on loan at Salernitana, continues to be linked with a move to Everton.

The Serie A club have the option to make the move permanent at the end of the season, with reports suggesting that the Blues are monitoring the situation.

Tammy Abraham

Everton have been tentatively linked with a move for Roma striker Tammy Abraham in recent weeks.

Reports have suggested that the Italian club could look to sell the former Chelsea striker this summer, with the Blues credited as a possible suitor.

Rodrigo Becao

Udinese defender Rodrigo Becao has been linked with a move to Everton ever since last summer.

Tottenham Hotspur have also been credited with an interest in the defender, who could be on the move at the end of the season if reports are to be believed.

Che Adams

Southampton striker Che Adams has been linked with a move to Everton in recent weeks.

Given the Saints' position in the Premier League table, reports have suggested that the Blues could look to sign Adams if his club are relegated.

Chuba Akpom

Everton have previously been credited with an interest in signing Middlesbrough striker Chuba Akpom.

They are seemingly not alone, though, with the likes of Crystal Palace, Southampton, Werder Bremen and Borussia Monchengladbach also rumoured to be interested.

Reiss Nelson

Rumours in recent weeks have claimed that Everton could make a move to Arsenal forward Reiss Nelson this summer.

Tentative links emerged earlier this year claiming that Nelson was a possible target for the Blues, but they seem to have quietened down in recent weeks.

Victor Gyokeres

Coventry City striker Victor Gyokeres has been linked with a move to Everton in recent months.

The Blues were heavily linked with the striker last year and in January, but the speculation seems to have calmed down somewhat since Dyche’s arrival.

Noa Lang

Everton have seen tentative reports linking them with a move for Club Brugge forward Noa Lang.

Reports from Belgium have previously stated that Lang is likely to leave Brugge at the end of the season, with Everton one of a number of clubs rumoured to be a possible destination.

Daichi Kamada

Eintracht Frankfurt midfielder Daichi Kamada has previously been linked with a move to Everton this summer.

Kamada is reportedly likely to leave the Bundesliga club as a free agent this summer, but there have been a host of other sides linked including Liverpool, Manchester City and Newcastle United.
