Borussia Dortmund revealed via Twitter on Wednesday that they released Emre Mor from a club photoshoot to allow him attend negotiations over his future.
The 20-year-old is, according to The Sun, a target of Premier League giants Liverpool and Everton this summer, with a £12 million move mooted.
The Sun added that Mor, who only joined Dortmund last summer, is keen on a move to England's top flight, amid reported from Fiorentina and Inter Milan also.
And it certainly seems as if the Everton and Liverpool target is set to leave Signal Iduna Park after Dortmund excused him from the team photo ahead of the 2017-18 season.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp tried to sign him last summer but he elected to join the German's former club from FC Nordsjælland.
But Everton are major players in this summer's transfer window, having spent £100 million on players so far, and a spell at Goodison Park might well appeal to the youngster.
He may have a better chance at playing regularly with the Toffees, amid speculation that wingers Aaron Lennon and Ademola Lookman are set to leave in permanent and loan moves respectively.
