Everton is already considering signing a “mentality monster.”

With Everton still facing the looming threat of Premier League relegation, attention has primarily centered on potential departures from Goodison Park rather than incoming transfers.

Nonetheless, reports suggest that if Everton secure their top-flight status, they could pursue a player who has tasted Europa League success.

Despite Sean Dyche’s satisfaction with the performances of Amadou Onana and Jarrad Branthwaite this season, there’s speculation that these players’ form might attract interest from other clubs.

Arsenal is reportedly eyeing a summer move for Onana, while Tottenham Hotspur and Real Madrid are said to be interested in Branthwaite, presenting a potential dilemma for Everton, especially if they face relegation.

Potential sales of these players could provide funds for Everton to strengthen their squad and avoid further Financial Fair Play sanctions.

Among the rumored targets is Filip Kostic, with Everton reportedly competing with West Ham United and Saudi Arabian clubs for his signature. Juventus, the player’s current club, is reportedly open to offers ranging from €10m to €15m (£9m to £13m).

Kostic, aged 31, brings valuable experience, having previously won the Europa League

with Eintracht Frankfurt, which has attracted Everton’s interest.

If Everton secures their Premier League status, signing a player of Kostic’s caliber could

bolster their squad and help them aim for a solid mid-table finish and beyond in the next campaign.

Kostic has earned praise for his tenacity, with former teammate Kevin Trapp describing him as a “mentality monster.”

Despite some inconsistency since joining Juventus, Kostic’s impressive performances

at Frankfurt highlight his potential impact.

If Everton can fend off competition and secure Kostic’s signature for a deal valued at under

£20m, it could prove to be a shrewd acquisition. However, their immediate priority remains avoiding relegation,

after which they can focus on potential transfers, making Kostic a player worth monitoring.
