Addicks starlet in Toffees link


Everton are being linked with another swoop on League One side Charlton for the signature of defender Ezri Konsa.

The Toffees raided the Londoners 12 months ago to ring in highly-rated forward Ademola Lookman and scouts have alerted current boss Sam Allardyce to the qualities of 20-year-old Konsa.

He broke into Addicks boss Karl Robinson’s last season and has already made 29 appearances in all competitions so far this term.

Konsa, who was also a member of the England Under-20 team that won the World Cup last year, was linked with a move to Goodison Park in the summer when Ronald Koeman was at the helm but nothing materialised at the time.

However, reports in the south London press are claiming that a deal worth £4million will go through before the January window closes for business.
