Everton round-up: PSV teenager wanted, Unsworth backs Gordon and Onyekuru interesting PSG

A selection of the latest news and gossip from Everton.

Startlet being monitored

Everton continue to monitor the situation surrounding PSV youngster Mohammed Ihattaren, according to Spanish outlet Marca.

The report suggests that the Toffees will face stiff competition from Barcelona who are desperately keen to land the player.

The 19-year-old looks set for big things and has played in Eredivisie for PSV seven times this season.

The attacking midfielder is clearly going to be a wanted man this summer. The pull of first-team football might hand Everton the edge for his signature, however.

Youngster has improved 100%

Everton Under-23 manager David Unsworth says that highly-rated Anthony Gordon is improving.

Gordon has been linked with Borussia Dortmund, according to the Liverpool Echo, but last week ended speculation by penning a new deal, as confirmed on the club’s official website.

Despite being only 17-years-old Unsworth claims that Gordon is already pushing for a start with the higher age group.

He told the Liverpool Echo: “He is good enough to be in the XI but it’s just that the two wide players are doing so well at the moment that I can’t leave them out.

 

“His attitude and work-rate have improved 100% from where it was six months ago.

“He will remain at this level for the rest of this season and next and I am looking forward to working with him.

Striker a wanted man

Everton could well call upon striker Henry Onyekuru for their 2019/20 Premier League campaign, but first, they might need to fend off some interest.

The striker is currently on loan with Galatasaray and is one of the leading goalscorers in Turkey with 11 goals.

As a result of his fine form PSG are ready to offer the Toffees £20 million for the 21-year-old, according to TEAMtalk.

Everton were forced to loan the striker out due to work permit issues, but those would likely be resolved in the summer.

It now remains to be seen whether Marco Silva can keep PSG away from the day before he hands him a Premier League debut.
