Carlo Ancelotti will reportedly target Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot this month as he looks to strengthen his Everton squad.
Rabiot has been linked with both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur after failing to make a big impact in Turin since his summer arrival from Paris Saint-Germain.
According to Sports Witness, Everton are especially keen on the French midfielder and would be prepared to pay a €5m (£4.2m) loan fee to secure him until the end of the season.
The report adds that Arsenal and Spurs have also taken steps towards signing Rabiot but that Everton have the biggest interest and would be willing to include an option-to-buy in any loan deal.
The 24-year-old midfielder has made just 10 Serie A appearances for Juve this season, with no goals or assists and one red card.
Everton have seen an improvement since Ancelotti’s arrival, taking six points from nine available in the Premier League, but the experienced Italian is keen on adding to his squad.
