Portuguese winger Rafa Silva is wanted by Everton and Manchester United.

Everton and Manchester United are still hoping to sign Rafa Silva, A Bola reports.

The Portuguese media outlet claims that Silva is wanted by United, Everton and Ligue 1 side Monaco - with the latter team already making approaches to Braga for the winger.

Silva has long been linked with a move to the Premier League, having been a consistently top performer in the Liga NOS for the last three years.

Also capped at international level, Rafa made his debut for Portugal in February 2014, and has since played four times for the nation.

This season, Rafa has played 34 games in all competitions, scoring seven goals and registering seven assists.

He is performing every week in both domestic and European action, and at the age of 22-years-old he can only improve over time.

There are no indications in the report as to the asking price Braga will want for Rafa, although it is expected to be a multi-million pound deal.

He is young and talented, with a wealth of experience, and Braga have him tied down to the summer of 2019, meaning they are not being rushed into selling him.

Everton and the Red Devils will continue to track the winger for the remaining months of the season, ahead of potentially moving for him in the summer.
