The defensive midfielder was part of the starting Xi faced France in last night’s final, playing the full 120 minutes as Portugal lifted the continental crown after a late strike from substitute Eder.
At club level, the 24-year-old plies his trade with Sporting Lisbon, making 87 Primeira Liga appearances since breaking through to their first team during the 2013/14 campaign.
Everton have been linked with a number of physical midfielders in recent weeks, such as Zenit St. Petersburg’s Axel Witsel, and Carvalho is the latest to be mooted as a potential target.
However, The Sun claim the Toffees face competition from a number of their Premier League rivals, namely champions Leicester City, Merseyside neighbours Liverpool and Southampton.
It’s assumed Southampton are eyeing Carvalho as a direct replacement for like-minded enforcer Victor Wanyama, who signed for Spurs in an £11million deal earlier this summer.
