Everton had set their sights on Milan full-back Davide Calabria, but were told to forget about signing him.
According to Calciomercato.com, the Premier League outfit are very impressed by his recent performances for the Rossoneri.
Still aged only 21, Calabria is a right-back who can just as easily play on the left.
It’s reported the Toffees sent scouts to view Milan and Calabria, but were told there was no chance of signing the Italy under-21 international.
Calabria came up through the Milan youth academy and this season has contributed one goal with three assists in 20 competitive games for the Rossoneri.
