Everton after Newcastle starlet

The Toffees are closing in on Lewis Gibson from Newcastle.

According to Sportsmail, there are ongoing talks between Everton and Newcastle united about Lewis Gibson. The deal is expected to be finalised before the end of next week since the negotiations are at an advanced stage.

The 16-year-old is seen as one of England’s brightest talents and his departure would certainly hurt Newcastle’s squad. However, he will definitely be a great signing for the Toffees as all top Premier League clubs have been tracking the young defender.

Lewis Gibson would be one of many, who joined Ronald Koeman’s side this summer. So far Everton have signed Jordan Pickford, Michael Keane, Davy Klaassen, Henry Onyekuru, Sandro Ramirez and Wayne Rooney. Everton have certainly made a statement during the transfer window ahead of the forthcoming season.
