Charlton agree to sell Ezri Konsa, with Everton in pole position to sign him ahead of Liverpool

Charlton Athletic have ‘agreed to sell’ Ezri Konsa for £5 million, and Everton are in ‘pole position’ to sign him ahead of Liverpool, according to the Daily Mirror.
Charlton boss Karl Robinson, who played for both Everton and Liverpool in his youth, previously shared his belief that Konsa would be prised away in January, and said it would take a minimum of £5 million to land him.
“My gut feeling is that he will go in January,” said the Liverpudlian, as quoted the Daily Mirror.
“If I was him I’d be looking to go in January but we should look for £5 million minimum. Maybe we could try for a loan back but the player has to want that.”
Charlton have sold academy products Ademola Lookman and Joe Gomez to Everton and Liverpool, respectively, in recent years.
However, it is Everton who are said to be leading the race to sign Konsa, after Toffees scout Martyn Glover watched him in action against Blackburn last month.
The England Under-20 centre-back could be seen as the long-term successor to Ashley Williams and Phil Jagielka at Goodison Park, with both players well into their thirties.
