By Joel Turner IN General,Transfers - 19:45 Feb 27th 2017

Everton are lining-up a move to permanently replace Phil Jagielka and bolster their defence ahead of next season.

Toffees manager Ronald Koeman has identified Micheal Keane as the man to replace out of favour England defender Jagielka and wants to build his defence around the player.
Reports suggest the defender could cost Everton £28 million. They're not the first club to show interest in the player, with Burnley manager Sean Dyche reportedly turning down a number of bids for the 24-year-old due to a string of impressive displays at Turf Moor.

Burnley have struggled far more than Everton in the Premier League this season, but strong home form has seen them lose just three games at home this season and secure an excellent defensive record has been key to that success.

They've conceded just 12 goals at home this season, and Keane has played in six games that resulted in clean sheets for his side - only three fewer than Ashley William this term.

Ashley Williams and Ramiro Funes Mori are currently Everton's current first-choice pairing in central defence.

Koeman was reportedly keen on signing Virgil van Dijk from former club Southampton, but he is likely to move elsewhere. but expect the Holland defender to secure a move elsewhere.
