Five facts about Everton target Luis Cavanda

Belgium Flag

Everton have been linked with making Luis Cavanda their first signing of the summer.

David Moyes is yet to offer his absolute commitment to Everton for 2013/14 and beyond, but if reports are to be believed then behind the scenes there is work going on to prepare for next season.

Players are still being linked inwards at Goodison Park, and one of those is Luis Cavanda.

Talksport claimed this week that he is a target for Everton regardless of whether Moyes stays or goes, although you imagine it would be easier for any club to sell themselves to a player if they did know what was going on.

So who is Cavanda? Here are five facts about him to bring you up to speed...

1) Cavanda is a 22-year-old right-back, who currently plays for Lazio.

2) He was born in Angola, at international level has played for Belgium's under-21s, although he is yet to feature for the senior team.

3) Cavanda has made 24 appearances for Lazio this season including seven in the Europa League, providing two assists.

4) His contract expires in 2014, meaning Everton could snap him up for a knockdown price this summer.

5) He signed with Lazio from Marouane Fellaini's former club Standard Liege in 2009, and later spent a short period on loan with Torino ahead of this season.
