Everton are targeting a move for Crystal Palace defender Scott Dann, according to reports in The Independent which identify Roberto Martinez’ aims to secure defensive additions this summer.
The Toffees are looking for new recruits to bolster their squad heading into next season, after a disappointing campaign last term. Martinez has already secured the signing of Tom Cleverley on a free transfer from Manchester United but is not finished yet.
Everton lost Sylvain Distin and Antolin Alcaraz at the end of the season, leaving their back-line bare- but Martinez is stated to believe he can lure Merseyside born Scott Dann back to the North West, amid reports the player is keen on a transfer.
Alan Pardew’s Crystal Palace will be fighting hard to keep hold of their star defender, who was awarded the club’s Player Of The Year Award for his performances last term, but face a stiff test if reports indicating Dann’s desire to return to Merseyside are correct.
