According to a report from Italian media outlet Tuttosport, alleged West Ham target Aaron Ramey could be set to join Everton as part of a swap deal that would see Moise Kean head in the opposite direction.

According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, Hammers boss David Moyes is keen to bring the 29-year-old to the London Stadium this summer.
West Ham are looking to sell the likes of Felipe Anderson, Manuel Lanzini, Andriy Yarmolenko and Jack Wilshere this summer, according to ExWHUemployee.
If any of those names are sold, Moyes will need to add more energy and creativity to his ranks.
And with that in mind, Juventus ace Aaron Ramsey would have been the perfect addition.
Tuttosport reckon that Everton are in the driving seat in the race to sign the 58-capped Wales international, however, with Carlo Ancelotti keen to bring the former Arsenal man to Goodison Park.
Let’s be honest though. Were we ever really in the race to sign Ramsey?
First up, Ramsey’s massive £250k-a-week wages (Evening Standard) would have been a huge problem for West Ham.
Secondly, there is his age and injury record to take into account. David Moyes has repeatedly insisted that he wants to bring young and hungry players to the London Stadium this summer.
The Welshman will be 30 later this year, and he has missed 476 days through injury since the start of the 2014/15 campaign (Transfermarkt).
Perhaps missing out on Ramsey to Everton isn’t the worse thing in the world. As long as Moyes is backed to bring in the players he wants this summer.
As we all know, however, that is far from guaranteed.
