Roma tracking Everton defender Ben Godfrey


Everton centre-back Ben Godfrey is the latest defender to be linked with a surprise move to Serie A side Roma. The Giallorossi’s defensive woes have been well documented, with coach Jose Mourinho joking that he would have to play Romelu Lukaku in the back-line if things got any worse.

Il Corriere dello Sport claim that Godfrey is on the shortlist of potential targets for Roma as they look to strengthen a depleted back-line for the second part of the season.

Roma director Tiago Pinto has confirmed that signing a centre-back is on his agenda for the January transfer window, but the club will be operating with a restricted budget as part of their agreement with UEFA.

The Englishman has featured sparingly at Goodison Park, making just three appearances to date in the 2023-24 campaign, making his exit a possible option.
