Everton look set to battle Manchester City for the signature of highly-rated Spanish staret Ayoze Perez, reports The Mirror.  

The 20-year-old Tenerife player has been tracked by City boss Manuel Pellegrini for a while now, but faces competition from Everton's Roberto Martinez. 

Ayoze - as he goes by - plays in the Spanish equivalent to the Championship, came through the youth ranks at Tenerife before playing in their 'B' side and progressing into the first team. 

It is understood he would be available for around £1.5million in the summer. 

The youngster has been scouted by Sevilla and German side Schalke, as well as City, this season - so could have the option to snub a move to England completely. 

However, should Ayoze opt to join the Premier League he would likely be given more first team opportunities at Goodison Park than at the Etihad, and opt to join this countryman Martinez rather than the star-studded City side.
