transfer battle

The Getafe centre-back is wanted by both Premier League clubs and is valued at around £30million

Everton have reportedly moved ahead of Arsenal in the battle to sign Getafe centre-half Djene Dakonam in the summer.

Both clubs are chasing the Togo international who is valued at around £30million.

The Sun report that the Toffees are more likely to land the 27-year-old during the transfer window.

Unai Emery is keen on Dakonam but his limited transfer budget could cause an issue.

It is thought to only be around £45million and Everton’s intervention means the Gunners may be priced out of the market.

Marco Silva is looking for a possible replacement for Kurt Zouma, who has been on loan from Chelsea.

The centre-back looks set to head back to Stamford Bridge and may be fighting for a first-team place with the Blues facing a transfer window ban and Gary Cahill leaving.

Dakonam had a good season for Getafe as they finished fifth in LaLiga and made 34 appearances.
