Milliyet’s Galatasaray journalist Nevzat Dindar has claimed on Asist Analiz TV that Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti is still interested in signing Galatasaray defender Christian Luyindama this summer.
Dindar says Ancelotti ‘likes’ Luyindama and Everton are ready to offer €8m, as they make enquiries about the availability of the player. This is the second report in a week which has stated the Toffees are looking to sign Luyindama.
However, the Turkish report suggests Galatasaray will be looking to get at least €15m from the sale of the central defender.
Luyindama has been repeatedly linked with a move to the Premier League in recent months, with claims Aston Villa and Wolverhampton Wanderers are also in for him.
The DR Congo defender recently returned to first-team training after six months on the sidelines following an ACL injury he picked whilst playing for his country in November.
He’s made 15 appearances for Gala in all competitions this season and is under contract with the Turkish club until June 2022.
