Journalist Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Everton could be set for a boost amid their interest in Oleksandr Zinchenko.
Already in the transfer market, the Toffees have been reported to have a keen interest in signing the Manchester City man, and it looks as though that deal could hinge on a domino effect occurring.
Talking about it all on his YouTube channel, the journalist revealed his understanding of how the situation could play out in the coming weeks.
He said: “Marc Cucurella is the player that Manchester City want and Pep Guardiola wants.
“And then, Zinchenko [is] part of the domino. because if Cucurella arrives, Zinchenko has [a] very good chance to leave Manchester City this summer, with Everton really, really keen on signing him. Frank Lampard is a big fan.”
