According to reports from the Liverpool Echo, Everton are plotting a move for AC Milan attacker M’Baye Niang.
It looks very likely that Romelu Lukaku will be leaving Everton over the upcoming summer and replacing the Belgian international will not be an easy task for the Toffees, no matter how much money they receive from the potential sale.
Nonetheless, Everton will need to bring in a couple of capable attacking players over the summer and a host of names have already been linked with a move to Goodison Park during the past few weeks,
Now according to reports from the Liverpool Echo , claims have been made that Everton are keen on securing the services of Watford striker M’Baye Niang.
Niang spent the second half of last season on loan at Watford and while he did do a decent job, the 22-year-old is unlikely to be signed by the Hornets on a permanent basis as they will have to shell out a sizeable £15.7million for his services.
Even Niang is believed to be not too keen on making his stay at Vicarage Road a permanent one and the two parties already seem to have parted ways.
Other clubs remain interested in signing Niang though and according to reports from the Daily Mirror, revelations can now be made that the French Under-21 international is now wanted by Everton.
Niang did go for a trial at Everton back in 2012 but Milan beat the Toffees to the signing of the young attacker but the Merseyside outfit can now sign their long term target if they are willing to splash as much as £15million.
