Everton are the latest Barclays Premier League club to be linked with a move for Sevilla winger Diego Perotti.

The Argentine starlet has reportedly agreed to leave the La Liga outfit this summer after falling out-of-favour at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, and a trio of clubs in England are thought to be monitoring the situation. claims Toffees boss David Moyes is one of those to have taken an interest, along with Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish and Newcastle chief Alan Pardew.

It's claimed that a £14 million offer will be enough to bring the player to Goodison Park, a potential stumbling block for Everton given the difficult financial situation at the club.

Liverpool are known to have money at their disposal, with owners Fenway Sports Group pledging to back Dalglish in the transfer market as he looks to strengthen the Reds' squad.

Ashley Young and Eljaro Elia have also been linked with Liverpool as they continue their pursuit of wingers, and Perotti is another name on their shortlist.


Whilst speculation linking Everton to players is less prevalent in the English media, it's thought that Moyes is keen to make a couple of additions to strengthen the blue side of Merseyside.

The Scot suggested earlier in the week that even a small investment could make a big difference for the club, and that would certainly be the case in he transfer market as Everton would need to break their record signing to bring the 22-year-old to the club.

With one international cap to his name so far, the former Deportivo Morón youngster appears to be one for the future and Everton will hope to beat their illustrious Liverpool neighbours to the player.
