Everton have joined Crystal Palace in the quest to bring Zaidu Sanusi to the Premier League, according to O Jogo.
The 25-year-old scored the goal that won Porto the Primeira Liga title last season, but he may now leave the Portuguese giants.
Frank Lampard and Patrick Vieira are battling out for their signature after Tottenham made a move for the Nigerian in January.
O Jogo believes they will have to pay 25 million (21 million) for this privilege, with Porto posing a challenge to maintain their No.12 in Portugal.
Brighton are reportedly interested in signing Zaidu, who made 40 appearances for Porto last season, while Fulham are also monitoring the situation.
Porto have agreed to a contract with the defender until June 2025, therefore they are in a position to solicit 21 million dollars for his services.
Zaidu would be able to start in the Premier League with vast experience after winning ten caps for Nigeria, while also making 16 appearances in the Champions League.
Lampard and Vieira are speculating that they would spend 21 million on Zaidu.
Why is it true that both the Toffees and the Eagles have standout options at the left-back.
Crystal Palaces are fortunate to have Tyrick Mitchell, who won his first England cap last season with excellent performances.
Vieira has the impressive Tayo Adaramola, who made his first-team appearance last season, while Jairo Riedewald can play on the left of defence.
Following Lucas Digne''s departure, 17 million people have just been allowed to travel to Goodison Park at Everton, so it would not be appropriate to spend 21 million on another option.
Both sides have no need for a new left-back, thus a 21 million bond can be spent on other areas.
