Basel defender Aleksandar Dragovic has been linked with a move to the Premier League this summer, with Everton among his potential suitors, according to Football365.
And now the 22-year-old is keen on joining his international team-mate Andi Weimann in England, with the Toffees eager to add him to their backline ahead of next season.
Dragovic said: “I regularly speak to Andreas, who has told me a lot about how much he enjoys playing in England.”
“It’s competition at the highest level, which is what I’m looking for. The fans are fantastic, and the clubs command a lot of respect around the world.”
Southampton and Arsenal are also believed to be interested in the 14-times capped Austria international but Basel’s sporting director George Heitz says prospective suitors ‘face a tough fight’ for Dragovic’s services.
