Everton and Charlton Athletic have got rather well acquainted this past year.

The Toffees paid £11 million to sign winger Ademola Lookman from the League One side 12 months ago, according to the BBC, and look set to return to The Valley to bring another highly-rated prospect to Merseyside.

According to London News Online, Everton are poised to bring in centre-back Ezri Konsa before the end of the January transfer window with a £4 million move to Goodison Park on the cards.

The England youth international, who had been scouted extensively by Arsenal over the last couple of months, has been a regular in the Cardiff team over the last 18 months or so and will hope to take the next step in his career at Everton.

And according to Kent Live, Konsa is not the only Charlton talent who Everton are hoping to sign before 1 February. The report states that under-18 goal-scoring sensation Alex Willis is also turning heads at the Merseyside giants.

And it is little wonder why when you consider just how remarkable the youngster has been in recent months. Willis has scored 500 goals for Charlton at various youth levels, first moving to the London club in 2008 before signing a scholarship in 2016.

The report adds that Charlton will obviously want to keep hold of arguably the jewel in their crown and has suggested that Willis could even get his chance in the first-team in the near future with first-team manager Karl Robinson crying out for strikers.

But could Willis follow Lookman and Konsa to Everton instead?
