Report: Everton hopeful of signing Fulham's Moussa Dembele

Everton reportedly hold an interest in signing Fulham winger Moussa Dembele.

Everton are interested in signing Moussa Dembele from Fulham, according to a report in the Daily Mail.

Dembele is regarded as one of the finest youngsters outside the Premier League, and Everton are said to be keen on bringing him to Goodison Park.

They have apparently already made an enquiry as to his possible availability and could follow this interest up with a bid in the near future.

Dembele has made 15 appearances for Fulham this season, scoring twice in the process, and his performances have caught the eye.

The 18-year-old winger is blessed with pace and skill and appears to have the qualities required to threaten defences, even at the top level.

Dembele's contract at Fulham expires next year and Everton are hopeful that they could land him on a cut-price deal. 

If Dembele does move to Everton, he would likely arrive as a back-up option, but the Toffees would add him to a clutch of exciting youngsters that are starting to break through on Merseyside.
