Everton have reportedly had a bid rejected for Fleetwood Town goalkeeper Billy Crellin.
According to the Daily Mail, the Toffees have seen a £200,000 offer turned down for the youngster.
It is understood that the Merseyside club made a bid that included a significant amount of additional clauses that would activate if the 19-year-old succeeded.
The report details that there has also been interest from Wolverhampton Wanderers, Manchester United and Arsenal.
Crellin is a highly-rated young goalkeeper that has represented England up to Under-19s level and was part of the Under-17s squad that won the World Cup two years ago.
The shot-stopper has been given just one game at first-team level so far at Fleetwood, but has a reputation attracting interest from the top-flight.
Everton should always be on the search for the best young talents and Crellin has impressed enough to get into the England system.
The Toffees currently have England’s senior number one in Jordan Pickford and he’s a great role model for the Fleetwood youngster to follow.
He wouldn’t have a sniff of first-team football if he moved to Goodison Park and needs to try get senior action if he can elsewhere.
Everton are going to have to improve their offer if they want to sign Crellin and invest in his future.
