Everton are reportedly interested in signing Atletico Madrid full-back Santiago Arias according to a report by AS via Sport Witness.
The report revealed that the Blues are monitoring Arias who hasn't enjoyed much game tie manager Diego Simeone, only making 11 appearances across all competitions.
However, it seems Carlo Ancelotti is in for a battle as his former team Napoli is believed to be interested in signing the Colombian.
The Blues have good financial backing and they will hope to outbid the Serie A club.
The 28-year-old has previously played for La Equidad (Colombia), Sporting CP, Sporting CP B, Jong PSV and PSV Eindhoven where he made his most appearances for the club (136) and nine goals in the process.
