Odds update: Everton listed at 7/1 behind Real Madrid to sign Kasper Dolberg

Ajax forward Kasper Dolberg celebrates after scoring a goal during UEFA Europa League semi-final, first leg, Ajax Amsterdam v Olympique Lyonnais (OL) on May 3, 2017 in Amsterdam.

The Ajax ace could be heading to Everton this summer, according to the bookies.

Popular bookmakers SkyBET have installed the Toffees as second favourites in the race to sign highly-rated Ajax forward Kasper Dolberg.

The 19-year-old striking sensational was magnificent for the Dutch giants in all competitions last season, scoring 22 goals and chipping in with seven assists in 43 outings for his side.

Unfortunately for Ajax, however, those performances did not go unnoticed, with many of Europe's biggest clubs showing interest in him, including the likes of AC Milan, Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City, according to the Daily Star.

It perhaps comes as somewhat as a surprise then to see Everton listed as 7/1 second favourites with SkyBET to sign the Danish sensation behind Real Madrid who lead the way at 7/2.

With Ronald Koeman on the lookout for reinforcements in forward areas, Dolberg would be the ideal addition to the Blues squad. He is technically apt, possesses blistering pace, and is lethal in front of goal.

On top of that, he still has plenty of years ahead of him in which to learn further still, and if Koeman manages to bring him to Goodison Park, it could turn out to be a signing of real significance for Everton.
