Diogo Dalot joined AC Milan on a season-long loan from Manchester United last summer having fallen out of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first-team plans. And it is safe to say that he has enjoyed a decent spell in Italy.
He has received first-team opportunities at AC Milan. This season, he has made 24 appearances in all competitions for Stefano Pioli’s side, playing a combined 1733 minutes of football for them.
Yes, there have been ups and downs during his time in Italy as well. But overall, one feels that the youngster should be satisfied with the impact that he has made at his loan club.
Of course, those performances have managed to catch the attention of clubs from all around Europe. And while he will surely draw interest from the Serie A at the end of the season, it looks like Everton could try to sign the Portuguese youngster as well.

Everton have been linked with Manchester United star once again
According to Liverpool Echo, Everton could consider making a move for Dalot in the upcoming summer transfer window. Everton had reportedly tried to sign the Braga-born full-back on two previous occasions including last summer. But ultimately, a move failed to transpire back then.
This summer could see the Merseyside club making a third attempt to sign the Portuguese star, who can play both as a right-back and a left-back. And Everton appear to be looking for a right-back at this point of time. Thus, signing Dalot could make a lot of sense.
Their first-choice right-back, Séamus Coleman, is set to turn 33 next October. And sooner or later, the Toffees will need to look for a long-term replacement for their club captain.
Manchester United, on the other hand, are also believed to be interested in a back-up to Aaron Wan-Bissaka. As a result, it is very possible that Dalot could remain at Old Trafford as well.
