Everton's impressive recruitment over the past 18 months has led to one of their most promising additions flying under the radar.

Shani Tarashaj was bought last January from Grasshoppers Zurich before being loaned back, before being sent out this season to German side Frankfurt.

Everton have a decision as to what to do with Tarashaj this summer, and clubs are queuing up to sign him.

Italian website Tuttomercatoweb report Torino are keen to land the 22-year-old, and face competition from Spanish clubs Espanyol and Villarreal, and German club Mainz.

The clubs are eyeing a permanent move, but Everton are likely to want to take a closer look at the player before sanctioning a deal.

Tarashaj has struggled at Frankfurt this season, playing only 13 times, but Everton would be wise to at least bring him in for pre-season and assess him closely before letting him leave.

The fact four clubs from Europe's top leagues are showing an interest speaks volumes about his talent, and Everton should be cautious about letting him leave easily, especially bearing in mind the past error with Shrokdran Mustafi, now a regular at Arsenal.
