Everton FC are one of a number of clubs chasing Gambian starlet Modou Barrow according to the player’s agent.

Willie McKay told Sky Sports that the Blues had joined the queue for the 21-year-old’s services and says that he could be available for as little as £1.5m.

He said: “There is a great deal of interest in Modou and that is no surprise as he been the best player in Sweden this season.

“I have spoken with several clubs, including Everton, Bolton, Norwich and Sheffield Wednesday about Modou and they are keen on him.

“He is available for as little as €1.5million and he is also on comparatively low wages so he would be a bargain for someone.”

Barrow has scored eight goals in 15 appearances for his club, Ostersunds FK which has caught the eye of several English clubs.


Christian Atsu’s move to Everton is very close to be completed, that’s according to Ghana Soccernet.

The 22-year-old winger will join the Blues on a season-long loan move from Chelsea and will act as a replacement for Gerard Deulofeu.

The skillful winger started his career at Porto before moving to Chelsea last summer.

Borussia Mönchengladbach midfielder Christoph Kramer is a target for Roberto Martinez, that is reported by German newspaper Bild .

The World Cup winner is reportedly on Martinez’s list of targets but it remains to be seen whether the Spaniard will do business after strengthening his midfield with the additions of Gareth Barry and Muhamed Besic already this summer.

23-year-old Kramer started the World Cup final for Germany and is very highly rated in his homeland.
