Napoli keen on signing Everton defender

Everton - John Heitinga defender is open to a January move amidst reports that is keen to land the Dutchman.

Everton coach Roberto Martinez has confirmed he’s willing to sell the out-of-favour centre-half during the January transfer window after keeping the veteran on the bench for most of the season to date.

According to The Mirror, the Azzurri are looking to bring Heitinga to Italy and could be aided by the fact that the 30-year-old is in the final year of his contract at Goodison Park, meaning the Toffees could part with him for a cut price before losing him for free in the summer.

In addition to Napoli, and are also interested in landing the former Ajax and Atletico Madrid defender.
