Everton have joined the race for Arsenal transfer target Clement Lenglet.
Arsenal have been showing their interest in the French defender, according to SPORT, who is reportedly not in the plans of Xavi Hernandez for next season.
Now, Fichajes are reporting that Everton have entered the race for Lenglet, and they also list Sevilla and Tottenham as interested parties.
Arsenal seems an unlikely destination for Lenglet, especially with Ben White and Gabriel performing well this season. Regular first-team minutes may not be guaranteed at The Emirates, but it could be a different story at Goodison Park.
