According to UOL Esporte, Everton are taking a closer look at 20-year-old defender Eder Militao.

Over the summer we saw Marco Silva make a real effort to try and sign new defenders in the window.

Yerry Mina, Kurt Zouma and Lucas Digne all joined, too, but it looks as though he is still potentially in the market for one more.

Militao, then, joined FC Porto not so long ago from South America but he is quickly impressing and the Blues are thought to be monitoring his progress at the moment.

With any young defender, there is always a risk as they might not end up becoming the player you thought they would in the coming years.

We might not see the Blues go for him straight away with that in mind, then, but there is, of course, always that risk that we’ll see him kick on and other sides look to steal in thereafter.
