Report: Everton scouts were at Holland's friendly against Austria... three potential targets

Everton manager Roberto Martinez

Everton scouts were at Holland's friendly against Austria.

According to a report in the Daily Mail, Everton scouts were watching Holland’s recent friendly against Austria, which Danny Blind’s side won 2-0.

In this piece we take a look at three potential targets who they could have been tracking.

Vincent Janssen

Vincent Janssen scores the first goal for Netherlands

Janssen scored Holland’s first match of the night, and he could well be on Ronald Koeman’s wishlist if he does move to Everton.

The Toffees are likely to lose Romelu Lukaku this summer, and a striker will be high up on their wishlist if the Belgian international departs.

Janssen has emerged as one of the brightest young talents in Europe recently, and his arrival at Everton would signal their intentions.

AZ Alkmaar front man Janssen has hit 30 goals in 43 appearances for club and country this past season.

Georginio Wijnaldum

Georginio Wijnaldum celebrates scoring the third goal for Newcastle from the penalty spot

Wijnaldum was Holland’s other scorer on the night, and Everton have been strongly linked with the Newcastle United attacking midfielder.

The Toffees should already have a good knowledge of Wijnaldum’s ability, given that he was playing in the Premier League last season, but they could have been making some final checks before submitting an offer to Newcastle.

Aleksandar Dragovic

Aleksandar Dragovic scores the first goal for Dynamo Kiev

Everton are likely to invest in their defence in the summer, and Austria’s Dragovic could be a target.

The Dynamo Kiev defender is a real physical presence, but he is comfortable with the ball at his feet.

Dragovic has been linked with a range of Premier League clubs already, and Everton would likely face competition if they did make a move for the 25-year-old.
