Mallorca midfielder Baba Iddrisu is being linked with a move to English Premier League giants Everton in the next transfer window.

According to Fichajes, Everton are interested in a move Baba, possibly in the January window, to ease the pressure on the team due to multiple injuries.

Rafael Benitez is keen to bring in a player who can operate in the middle, with Baba one of the players on their shortlist.

The injury to Abdoulaye Doucoure recently has given Rafael Benitez multiple problems. Everton have lost their last two games without the influential midfielder and could face more difficulties, specifically against the bigger sides without the Frenchman’s quality.

With Andre Gomes facing multiple fitness issues, Allan remains the only bonafide starter in the centre of the park for the Toffees. Should the Brazilian suffer an unfortunate injury, Everton will badly struggle to control games. Hence, Benitez is eager to sign a midfield option in the coming window.

Iddrisu Baba is the latest player to be linked with a move to Merseyside. The midfielder who plays his trade with Mallorca in Spain might be open to a new challenge, and if Everton make a concrete offer, a move might transpire in the next window.

Baba has played 11 times in La Liga this season and recently scored his first goal against Cadiz to help Mallorca earn a valuable point. However, having spent the entirety of his senior career at the Spanish club, it may be time for a move. The Ghanaian’s qualities will be greatly valued, particularly at Everton.

Baba plays as a central midfielder, who is known for his excellent defensive skills in the middle. He also contributes considerably to the attacking side of things, which shows his ability to play the box-to-box role.

Baba has a contract with Mallorca until 2024, meaning Everton may have to part company with a reasonable chunk of money to sign him. If the offer is right, Baba could move clubs as soon as January, with the Merseysiders desperate to bring in a quality midfielder.
