Possible Rangers boost as Everton reportedly keen on Kieran Trippier

In a possible boost for Rangers, Nathan Patterson-linked Everton are reportedly interested in Kieran Trippier [90min.com].

It’s thought that current Toffees boss Rafa Benitez sees the 20-year-old as a possible long-term replacement for the ageing Seamus Coleman.

Many Rangers fans fear the homegrown talent leaving Ibrox before being given the chance to make a proper impact at first-team level, so they’ll be pleased to hear that he’s not the only right-back said to be on Everton’s radar.

90min.com report that the Goodison Park side are also keen on Atletico Madrid and England right-back Trippier.

Trippier is currently out injured and won’t be fit until January but a host of other Premier League clubs are also credited with interest in him including Newcastle, Man United, Aston Villa and Crystal Palace.

Should Everton land the 31-year-old, who cost Atletico £20m in 2019, it would end any chance of Patterson heading to Goodison.

Of course, the Toffees aren’t the only side to be credited with interest in the starlet, with Man United, PSG, Bayern Munich and Atletico the biggest clubs linked so far [90min.com].

Meanwhile, Zeb Jacobs has labelled Rangers an ‘amazing club’ after his Ibrox switch was confirmed.
