According to The Mirror, Everton are one of three Premier League clubs interested in signing Huddersfield Town attacker Elias Kachunga, with Middlesbrough and Watford also keen.

Kachunga, 24, failed to score a Bundesliga goal for Ingolstadt last season, but Huddersfield boss David Wagner recruited a number of players from his native Germany over the summer, and Kachunga was one.

The German attacker, who can play out wide or up front, joined the Terriers on loan for the season, and he has repaid Wagner's faith with a superb campaign so far.

Kachunga has found the net ten times this season, with nine of his goals coming in the Championship as Huddersfield chase a play-off spot this term.

Now, The Mirror report that Kachunga's performances are attracting interest, as Everton, Middlesbrough and Watford are all interested in signing him at the end of the season.

It's claimed that Huddersfield have a £1.5million option on Kachunga to make his move permanent, but if they do choose to activate that clause, then Huddersfield could sell him on for a profit.

Everton have been searching for a striker to support Romelu Lukaku, and whilst Ademola Lookman arrived from Charlton Athletic in January, Kachunga's Championship displays could put him in the frame at Goodison Park.

Middlesbrough have desperately struggled for goals and remain shot-shy despite landing Rudy Gestede and Patrick Bamford, whilst Watford could look to Kachunga if M'Baye Niang doesn't sign permanently at the end of the season.
