Everton Step Up Interest In Highly Rated Scottish Youngster: Smart Choice By Koeman?

Everton seems to have lost their winning touch as they have now lost two games in a row, first against Chelsea and then against Tottenham Hotspur. The Toffees have not been able to score a single goal in their last two matches but have conceded five goals in what have been disappointing displays on both occasions.

Ronald Koeman, the man in charge at Goodison Park, is wary about his team composition and is already looking to add some fresh legs to the squad in order to boost his defence, which has been an area of concern for him, especially in the last two matches. The Dutchman is looking forward to adding new players to his roster in order to make his team perform better than the way it is doing now.

One such young player, who has been on the radar of the Everton manager for some time now is the Scottish defender Anthony Ralston, who is currently playing for the Scottish Champions Celtic. The player has been one of the most highly regarded youngsters in the country and has played for the national Under 21 team already.

The 18-year-old has risen through the ranks at the Celtic Park and has now earned a permanent place in the senior team under the tutelage of Brandan Rodgers.

The Scottish Premiership winning coach has been very much fond of his ability to tackle and snatch the ball and keep possession for a significant amount of time and is willing to give him as much game time as possible for bringing out the best in him.

However, the Scottish youngster has been hailed highly by a number of clubs in the Premier League as well, who are looking to get the player into their side in the next transfer window. Reportedly, Tottenham and Everton are currently the front runners and are ready to fight to bag the player in the near future.

Ronald Koeman has always been known for his benevolent tutelage of young players, helping to get the best out of them. Ralston will be a good inclusion to his side undoubtedly as it will be helpful for the player as well as the team to get a good defender, who can help get a number of positive results for the Merseyside club in the future.

However, the Dutchman will only be able to get his hands on the Scotland international only if that the Hoops let go of him in the next transfer window. So should Koeman go all in for this youngster?
