Everton scouts in Portugal to watch a host of young talent

Everton reportedly sent scouts to watch Benfica’s Europa League clash with Galatasaray this week to watch a number of players/

The Portuguese side made it through to the last 16 after a 0-0 draw against their Turkish rivals.

Bruno Lage’s men won 2-1 on aggregate and their second leg encounter in Lison was well-stocked with talent spotters.

Record claim that the Toffees were one of the clubs watching a host of players at the game, including loanee Henry Onyekuru and winger Franco Cervi.

Andrija Živković was another player believed to be of interest to the Merseyside outfit, but he spent the entire match on the bench.
