The Lancashire Evening Post reckons that Everton’s star defender Joleon Lescott could be a target for Man Utd boss Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsenal supremo Arsene Wenger. According to the Lancashire Evening Post:
“Lescott has emerged as a shock target for Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger. The Everton defender has been watched by Manchester United and Arsenal after a fine season at Goodison Park.”
Quite why Lescott, an England international defender, who can boast seven goals to his name and some supreme performances at the back for Everton – is “a shock target” is beyond us. Everton value Lescott at £10m, but losing him would seriously dent their hopes of clinging on to fourth place.
