Everton manager Rafa Benitez has reportedly set his sights on Barcelona defender Clement Lenglet and wants to sign him this summer, according to reports from multiple sources. The former Liverpool manager was announced as the new manager of Everton some days ago following the departure of Carlo Ancelotti to Real Madrid some days before. Benitez’s appointment as Everton boss had a lot of tongues wagging, with fans of the Toffees voicing their displeasure at the club’s decision to appoint someone who has once managed their Merseyside rivals, Liverpool.

However, some of the club’s players, including the management, have all responded to the fans’ concerns, insisting that Benitez has come with the purest of intentions and is eager and willing to work for the success of Everton Football Club. The Spanish manager has, of course, started his duty as the club’s manager and has also started looking out for players that he can sign this summer in a bid to turn the club into a better side next season.
