A report in The Sun has suggested that Everton, Blackburn Rovers and Bournemouth are all interested in signing Le Havre's teenage goalkeeping sensation Yorgan Agblemagnon.

The Premier League pair and Championship strugglers have all been keeping a keen eye on the 17-year-old, who is clearly being tipped by some to enjoy a very bright future in the game.

The Sun reports that Agblemagnon - who is also being tracked by Portuguese giants Porto - has recently earned a call-up to the senior Togo national squad for their upcoming games with Egypt and Libya during the current break.

That progress has seen the Le Havre under-19 stopper move onto the English trio's radar, and The Sun suggests that they may have an upper hand on Porto in the race for his signature if the prospect of first-team football is on the horizon at some stage down the line.

While Blackburn will certainly hope to avoid relegation to League One, playing in that division may perhaps make them more inclined to hand Agblemagnon a greater number of first-team opportunities, which would make them a more appealing for the youngster perhaps.

Meanwhile, Ronald Koeman and Eddie Howe would be forgiven for wanting to inject some youth into their goalkeeping department with both Everton and Bournemouth boasting ageing goalkeepers in their ranks, and judging by Agblemagnon's potential, they may well feel that the opportunity to sign him is one they do not want to miss out on.
