Everton are expected to be busy in the January transfer window.

According to De Telegraaf, Everton have made a last-minute bid to try and secure the signing of Ajax youngster Riechedly Bazoer.

The Blues are expected to be busy in the January transfer window, with Ronald Koeman keen on adding to his squad.

They have been linked with a number of signings, with some reports suggesting the Dutchman wants as many as eight signings.

And it appears that one man they are targeting is the 20-year-old Ajax midfielder, who is set to depart the Eredivisie giants next month.

According to De Telegraaf, they are willing to sell for €12 million, around £10 million and Everton are keen on his signature.

The Toffees have reportedly already made contact about a move as they look to beat competition for his signature.

That competition comes from Wolfsburg and Juventus, who also want to sign the youngster in the winter transfer window.

At this moment in time, a move to Goodison Park would be a hard sell given their struggles but Koeman will likely hope that the guarantee of first team football could persuade Bazoer into the move.
