The young Chilean would be a fine long-term investment for Everton.

Everton made plenty of signings in the summer but their lack of pace has been clear since the opening week of the new season.

It is okay to rely on creative catalysts such as Gylfi Sigurdsson, Davy Klaassen and Wayne Rooney if you play fast players around them; something Everton boss Ronald Koeman has been reluctant to do thus far.

The Toffees are suffering as a result and they need to include Ademola Lookman while hoping Yannick Bolasie and Seamus Coleman return sooner rather than later.

As much as Everton do have options out wide, there is a lack of pace in central areas; something that could be resolved if Koeman made a move for one of the most exciting teenage midfielders in the world right now in the form of Branco Provoste.

The Chilean may only be 17 but he has everything in his locker to be a future first-team star at a club like Everton, and if the Toffees beat any other suitors to the punch they would be signing a player with the potential to take Goodison Park by storm.

An attacking midfielder with an eye for an assist and the pace to burst into space, Provoste is currently on the books at Colo Colo, for whom he made his debut as a 16-year-old.

Everton scout far and wide for new additions and on this occasion the Chilean could be right up their street.
