John Egan as Carlo Ancelotti eyes first transfer
New Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti is reportedly eyeing up a move for Sheffield United defender John Egan in January.
The 27-year-old centre back has been one of the Blades' stand-out players in their superb start to Premier League life,
and Everton see him as a perfect addition to their squad.
The Toffees are thought to be targeting defenders in the transfer window as they look to shore up their leaky back-line,
and believe they could tempt Egan away from Bramall Lane.
Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder, however, is confident they can resist any big-money offers for their players.
Wilder knows they cannot match the wages on offer at most of their Premier League rivals
but the Blades boss claims the club are in a much stronger position than 18 months ago when they lost David Brooks to Bournemouth.
