Report: Everton are looking to sign Ireland's Gavin Bazunu

GAVIN BAZUNU could be heading to Merseyside next season according to reports today.

The 20-year-old has shone for Portsmouth and Ireland this season and has been highley tipped to play Premier League football, sooner rather than later by his manager Danny Crowley.

Last month Bazunu was coy on his future and said: "I've absolutely no idea, I'm open to everything," he said.

"I've got to go and meet some people at Manchester City, see what they have to say, but like I say my aim is just to go out and play again.

According to the Independent, City would explore including a buyback option if he did indeed leave the Etihad.

The article also states that Everton have also been mulling over their goalkeeping options and that Bazunu has been in their sights for quite some time.

Reports in the UK mention that Frank Lampard is looking to start a rebuild and England's number one Jordan Pickford is touted as one of the more saleable assets, adds the report.

The Manchester City loanee has also been linked to a host of Championship clubs like Southampton, Bournemouth and Sheffield United.

Bazunu has kept 16 clean sheets this year and was voted Players’ Player of the Season at Pompey’s 2021/22 and Player of the Season at Portsmouth.

It could be a real steal for any club that picks up the former Shamrock Rovers keeper and maybe Seamus Coleman can put in a good word to land his Ireland teammate.
