Everton set sights on Croatia international who joined Besiktas just six months ago

Everton have set their signs on Besiktas star defender Domagoj Vida.

The Croatia international only joined the Black Eagles back in January but has failed to settle in with the Istanbul based club.

A source close to Besiktas has revealed to Turkish-Football that Everton have enquired about the availability of the powerful centre-back.

Per the source, Besiktas are willing to sell Vida this summer for the right price.

The 29-year-old earns a hefty €3 million per season at the Istanbul based club. With Besiktas missing out on the UEFA Champions League next season, they are open to reducing their wage bill.

Everton are understood to be on the lookout for new defenders this summer with both Phil Jagielka and Ashley Williams on the wrong side of 33.
