Everton reportedly want to sign Manchester City centre-back Tosin Adarabioyo, while Leicester City, Wolves and Newcastle United are also interested.

The 22-year-old has gained a lot of attention throughout his season on loan at Blackburn Rovers, where he has become popular with the fans for his tough-tackling, composed style of play.

He had previously made eight appearances for Manchester City’s first team, after joining the club at the age of five.

According to 90min, Adarabioyo’s impressive displays have attracted the attention of Leicester City, Burnley, Everton, Wolves, Newcastle and Southampton, as well as Championship side Leeds United.

It is also reported that the centre-back will be allowed to leave Etihad permanently in the summer.

Pep Guardiola’s side are expected to demand a buy-back clause in any deal to sell Adarabioyo, which will have a rumoured initial price tag of £20m.

This is Adarabioyo’s second Championship loan spell, as he had previously spent a season at West Bromwich Albion, but appeared in under half of their league matches.
