According to The Mirror, Everton are lining up a £20million move to sign West Ham United's Michail Antonio during this month's transfer window.

The Toffees suffered a 4-0 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday evening, and manager Sam Allardyce may now need to dip back into the transfer market after four defeats in a row in all competitions.

Allardyce has made one signing at Everton boss, landing striker Cenk Tosun from Besiktas earlier this month, and more additions could be on the way amid links to Arsenal's Theo Walcott.

Now, The Mirror report that Everton are interested in signing West Ham United's Michail Antonio, with a £20million move potentially in the pipeline during this month's transfer window.

Antonio, 27, joined West Ham from Nottingham Forest back in September 2015, and has been a star for the Hammers since that move, hitting nine goals in each of his two seasons at the club.

The wide man has endured a frustrating campaign this season though, as injured have limited him of late, and he has scored just once in 15 Premier League appearances.

Antonio was called up by Everton boss Allardyce for England duty back in 2016, and a move to Goodison Park could see the pair reunite.

After impressing fans with his pace, power, work rate and versatility, Antonio could now be the subject of a £20million bid – but whether West Ham would sell for that is another matter.
