Everton lining up bid for River Plate star

Everton are reportedly considering making a move for River Plate defender Ramiro Funes Mori.

The Liverpool Echo reports that the 24-year-old Argentina international would cost Everton around £5.5million.

Everton boss Roberto Martinez is keen to strengthen his options at centre-half this summer following the departures of Sylvain Distin and Antolin Alcaraz.

Mori played a key part in River Plate winning the Copa Libertadores this season.
