Everton could sign Nico Elvedi for as little as £4.3 million this week.

According to BILD, Borussia Monchengladbach could be open to offloading the defender for between €5-6m (£4.3-5.1m).

Reports this week have claimed that Everton are in talks with the German club over a potential move for Elvedi, as Sean Dyche looks to bolster a backline that have really struggled in their opening three matches.

Elvedi has spent the last eight years at Borussia-Park and has become an ever-present figure in their defence, making 32 appearances in the Bundesliga last season.

The 6 ft 2 defender has also been a target for Wolves, who were prepared to cough up £8m for his signature earlier in the summer. The Sun have claimed that Gary O’Neil’s side could go back in for Elvedi if they are to rake in £47m from Matheus Nunes’ potential move to Manchester City.

However, BILD have claimed that Wolves’ pursuit of the ‘incredible’ 26-year-old has stalled due to FFP concerns. Gladbach would reportedly still prefer to sell Elvedi for a eight-figure fee, but his contract situation may force their hand.

The German side have already begun to plan life without Elvedi and they are aware that clubs may not be willing to meet their demands as his contract expires next summer. This means they could now consider parting ways with the defender for a lower fee if Everton make a last minute bid.

Could Everton land a bargain signing in Nico Elvedi?

A late move for Elvedi could prove to be a really good decision for the Toffees, especially given his particularly low price tag.


Sean Dyche’s side look close to completing their attacking overhaul as Beto closes in on a £26m move and they may now be able to turn their attention to bringing in defensive reinforcements.

Jarrad Branthwaite‘s return from his loan spell at PSV looks to be a handy addition, though the poor form of James Tarkowski and Michael Keane this season has left the Merseyside club in need of further signings.
