Everton recently expressed interest in signing Fulham sensation Ryan Sessegnon and are reportedly also keen on his twin brother Steven, according to The Liverpool Echo.
It is believed that the Toffees see the 16-year-old right-back as a more preferable target, who currently plays in the under-23s for the Cottagers.
The right-footed defender can also operate as a centre-half and defensive midfielder.
It is understood Everton’s director of football Steve Walsh wishes to bring the talented teenager to Goodison Park in order to add quality to their next batch of first-team hopefuls.
Brother Ryan, who has made 24 first-team appearances so far this season, scoring six goals at left-back has also attracted the attention of Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City.
The Toffees have edged closer to the prospect of European football next season after beating Hull City 4-0 on the weekend.
They face Merseyside rivals Liverpool next who are currently six points ahead of the Blues.
