Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori is reportedly on the shortlist of transfer targets at Premier League club Everton.

According to Sky Sports, the Toffees want to sign the Nigerian-born English centre back between now and the end of this Premier League transfer window.

The Premier League transfer window ends on Thursday, August 8.

Everton are in need of defensive reinforcements ahead of the new season billed to start next week Friday.

The Merseysiders lost the services of Phil Jagielka and Kurt Zouma at the end of last season.

Phil Jagielka was the Everton skipper before the end of last season.

The veteran centre back left the Toffees earlier this summer after the expiration of his contract and he has since joined former club Sheffield United on a free transfer.

Phil Jagielka will retain his status as a Premier League player since Sheffield United will be in the division after their promotion at the end of last season.

The Blades secured automatic promotion after finishing in second place at the end of the regular Championship season.

On his part, Kurt Zouma impressed a great deal while he was on loan at Everton from fellow Premier League club Chelsea and he has returned to his parent club.

Fikayo Tomori could soften the blow of losing the services of Phil Jagielka and Kurt Zouma.
