The striker has been linked with a departure from Everton already this season.

According to Bild, RB Leipzig are interested in a move for Everton youngster David Henen.

Henen has been at Everton since 2014 but is yet to make a senior appearance for the Toffees.

Last season saw him sent out on loan to Fleetwood Town, where he managed just one goal in 11 appearances.

He has already been linked with a move away from Goodison Park this season, with the Star reporting he wanted to leave in January, with several French sides reportedly interested.

Now, Bild claims that Bundesliga leaders RB Leipzig are interested in a move for his services.

Sporting director Ralf Rangnick has already made contact about a potential transfer as they continue to target youngsters following the capture of Oliver Burke this summer.

The newspaper also reports that he is not getting game time at Everton because the youngster does not convince manager Ronald Koeman at this stage.

Whether Everton would allow him to leave is unknown but it seems unlikely they would be keen on the idea.

They have been stung by youngsters leaving and developing elsewhere in recent years, notably Shkodran Mustafi, and will surely be keen to avoid a similar occurrence with Henen.
