Do Everton need another centre-back this summer?
A host of other centre-backs have been mentioned, but Bent, who played for the Blues across a two-year spell, revealed that his former side won’t be adding another to their defensive ranks.
Ancelotti currently has Mina, along with Ben Godfrey, Michael Keane and Mason Holgate at his disposal, whilst youngster Jarrad Branthwaite, who’s on loan at Blackburn, is another in that position.
Everton might have the second worst defensive record in the top-eight, conceding more goals than the likes of Aston Villa and Brighton, but Bent told This is Futbol that it’s not a position Ancelotti will be adding to this summer:
“I don’t think so. I spoke to someone at the club during the week, and they’re not talking about getting a centre-half.
“They said they’ve got depth in the squad and they’re not going to be buying anyone in the transfer window.”
