Merseyside rivals Liverpool and Everton will go head-to-head in the January transfer window for Charlton Athletic’s young centre-back Ezri Konsa, say reports.
While the Reds are sorely in need of central defensive reinforcements, Konsa is just 19 and would perhaps be most likely to join up with Neil Critchley’s U-23 squad.
Solanke scored four times as England won the competition, winning the Golden Ball in the process.
Konsa is a centre-back who also features on the right, and is a regular member in the matchday squad for the League One side.
Six appearances off the bench this term in league play attest to his involvement despite his youth, while he was a starter for most of 2016/17.
At the U20 World Cup, Konsa was a peripheral figure, an unused sub five times and making just one cameo appearance in the semi-finals against Italy.
Konsa signed a three-year contract in March of this year on improved terms as recognition for his performances last term.
