Everton are said to have added Lille defender Gabriel Magalhaes to their list of summer transfer targets.

The 22-year-old centre back is reported to be Carlo Ancelotti’s prime target in terms of defensive reinforcements, as reported by ESPN.

However, it’s said that Everton will need to pip Manchester United and Napoli to the post for the Brazilian’s signature.

Lille are prepared to sell the defender, and are hoping to pick up around €25m for him should he leave France.

Everton are keen to strengthen at the back, with sporting director Marcel Brands on the hunt for a central defender and a right back this summer.
