Everton are reportedly planning a summer swoop for Aston Villa winger Marc Albrighton, reported in the Birmingham Mail.
Albrighton, 24, has established himself as one of top prospects in English football and has been regular in the Villains’ first-team.
The Toffees boss Roberto Martinez is thought to be interested in the 24-year-old and is keen for his signature at the end of the season when his contract expires.
Albrighton has made 19 Premier League appearances since returning from Wigan Athletic on loan spell and has performed much better in recent weeks and it is understood that he is desperate to keep his options open when the season ends.
A move to the Goodison Park could appeal to him, with the Toffees have already secured place in European football for next season.
