Four EFL clubs are in the hunt for young promising Everton striker Anthony Evans, according to a report by Portsmouth News.
They report that League 1 side Portsmouth, as well as Blackburn Rovers, Wigan Athletic and Brentford are all keen on signing the 20-year-old before the transfer window closes.
The report also says that Evans has just one year left on his contract and the Toffees are willing to let him leave for free in light of that.
That said, Everton would apparently insist on a sell-on clause if that were to be the case, as Evans does not look to have a future at Goodison Park despite Marco Silva’s relative lack of reliable strikers.
But Everton now have two young strikers in Moise Kean and Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who are both far ahead of Evans in their development, which looks set to push him out of the door.
His ability is underlined by the clubs who are interested but it’s likely better for Evans to leave Goodison in order to play regular football at this stage of his career.
Getting games and goals in the EFL may give Evans the chance to showcase his ability, and may perhaps make Everton regret letting him go for free at a later date.
