Last week, the Daily Mirror reported that West Ham are plotting an audacious bid to lure Everton midfielder Tom Davies to the London Stadium during the January transfer window.
The exciting young midfielder is one of the brightest talents coming through at Goodison Park, and he became a prominent member of the Everton squad while Ronald Koeman was in charge.
However, he has started just 11 times this season, and has not been starting regularly following Sam Allardyce’s appointment as manager.
Allardyce is ready to sanction the departures of a number of players in January, but Everton reportedly have no intention of selling him this month.
The Toffees, on the other hand, are looking to bolster the left-back option, with the Daily Mail reporting that Everton are interested in signing Aaron Cresswell from West Ham.
Cresswell is one of the key members of the Hammers squad, but it could be argued that they can afford to sell the left-back, with the emergence of Arthur Masuaku this season.
