Everton could send Fraser Hornby out on loan in January after a handful of clubs expressed an interest in signing the 18-year-old, according to The Sun on Sunday (September 16, page 63).
The teenager has been at the Merseyside outfit since 2014 when he joined the club’s academy from Northampton Town.
Over the last few weeks, the striker has impressed on the international stage by scoring five goals across two games for the Scotland Under-21s.
The Sun on Sunday (September 16, page 63) reports that a number of clubs are keen to sign Hornby on loan in January.
However, Everton should consider giving the youngster a chance in the first team this season to help his development.
Hornby is in a rich vein of form at the moment, so it could be beneficial for manager Marco Silva to include him in the first-team squad.
The teenager has only made one appearance for the senior side – in the Europa League – but he could learn some valuable experience playing in cup competitions this season.
Depending on how he progresses in the 2018-19 campaign, Everton should revisit a possible loan move next summer.
Hornby should at least get a taste of the Toffees’ first team before going to another club and trying to break through elsewhere.
