Roberto Martinez has stated that he’s looking to add three or four new faces to his squad and one of those is AIK winger Nabil Bahoui, according to the Daily Mail.

Having impressed for the Swedish club since signing from IF Brommapojkarna in 2013, Bahoui has reportedly drawn interest from the likes of Sunderland, Southampton and Crystal Palace, but Everton are hopeful of winning the race to his signature.

Capped two times for Sweden after making his international debut earlier this year, the highly-rated 23-year-old may be seen by the club as a potential replacement for Gerard Deulofeu as a tricky wide man, capable of filling a number of attacking roles.

The Blues are also looking at Chelsea winger Christian Atsu, reports the Mirror .

West Ham, Aston Villa and Everton are among 15 clubs interested in borrowing the 22-year-old Ghanaian and Chelsea have urged the World Cup winger to choose the loan club that gives him the best chance of breaking into their new-look team in 12 months’ time.

They go on to say that Everton’s interest hinges on the club making a decision over another Chelsea player, Romelu Lukaku.

The Toffees are holding out for the Belgium marksman after he shone on loan with them last season, but cannot take two players on loan from the same Premier League side.
