Everton fans absolutely love links to Lucas Torreira

According to reports in Italy, Everton are the latest English club to show an interest in Lucas Torreira, and fans are praying they can get a deal done.

Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira has been heavily linked with a move to Unai Emery’s Arsenal, but Calciomercato claim both Everton and Napoli have joined the race for the Uruguayan.

The report claims the Toffees have been scouting the midfielder, who has a £22million release clause in his contract.

Napoli fancy the feisty midfielder as a replacement to Jorginho, who himself  has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League.

Everton are of course looking to refresh their squad this summer, under the guidance of new director of football Marcel Brands.

Brands has shown he has an eye for talent during his time at PSV, and he certainly adds to the pulling power of the Merseyside club.

Torreria is an excellent little player who can do a little bit of everything, averaging 2.8 tackles and two interceptions per game this season, while also pitching in with one key pass and one dribble per game.

The 22 year-old, who will be on show alongside the likes of Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani at the World Cup this summer, scored four goals this season, and Everton fans are praying they can get this one over the line.
