Everton interested in 26-year-old currently playing at the World Cup

Everton are considering making a move for Torino midfielder Sasa Lukic who is currently featuring at the World Cup with Serbia.

Lukic started Serbia’s opening World Cup game against Brazil, making his 33rd appearance for his country. The 26-year-old is under contract at Torino until 2024, but a report from Torino Granata has claimed that Lukic is likely to leave in the upcoming January transfer window.

The report also claims that Everton are one of the clubs showing an interest in Lukic, along with fellow Premier League side Leeds United.
