Liverpool target Kevin de Bruyne has now emerged on Everton's list of potential summer recruits according to the Daily Mail.

The 19-year-old teen sensation has turned in a series of scintillating performances for Genk this season, to the point that the Belgian boy wonder has caught the eye of a number of potential suitors.

De Bruyne is thought to have been a long-term transfer target for Everton's Merseyside rivals Liverpool, with Reds director of football Damien Comolli having brought the player to the attention of newly appointed Anfield boss Kenny Dalglish.

After the January acquisition of Liverpool strike duo Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez, it is unclear at this stage whether Reds owners Fenway Sports Group would be willing to sanction a move for another forward.


But if Liverpool were to renew their interest in De Bruyne then they will likely face competition for his signature from a host of Barclays Premier League clubs with Chelsea and Manchester City also thought to be monitoring the player's situation.

Fresh interest from Everton, Sunderland, Fulham and West Brom has come to light after scouts from each club flew to Belgium for Genk's top-of-the-table clash with Standard Liege at the weekend.

The interested parties ran the rule over De Bruyne with a view to making a summer bid to bring him to England, so if Liverpool don't want to lose out on this bright young starlet, Anfield chiefs will have to move quickly.

With a variety of targets in a number of positions on the radar, Liverpool are keen to bring up and coming talent to the club and De Bruyne would fit the bill should the Reds manage to secure his signature.
