Everton eye Celtic defender

Everton are reportedly interested in acquiring Celtic right-back Anthony Ralston.

Sources claim that the Toffees have been closely monitoring the 18-year-old for some time and are planning to make a play to bring the prodigy to Goodison Park in the January transfer window.

Ralston has quickly emerged as one of football’s most promising young talents, evidenced by the teen’s stellar performance in their 5-0 Champions League group stage loss to French juggernauts Paris Saint-Germain, where the defensive specialist was tasked with containing talismanic forward Neymar Jr.

League rivals West Ham have also been linked with the Scot, whose current deal with Brendan Rodgers’ squad is set to expire in 2019.
