Everton are reportedly making plans for a potential move for Crystal Palace starlet Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Wan-Bissaka has enjoyed a superb spell at Selhurst Park. The right-back only made his senior debut for the Eagles in February of this year, but now has to be considered a key player for Roy Hodgson's men.
The Sun reports that Palace will block any attempt to poach the 20-year-old during the January transfer window, but Everton are making plans for a future bid for the youngster - who has made nine appearances in the Premier League this season.
The report adds that Marco Silva's men are compiling a dossier on Wan-Bissaka, and could even consider offering Ademola Lookman or Cenk Tosun - who joined in January for £27 million, according to BBC Sport - in an attempt to boost their hopes of bringing the full-back to Goodison Park.
Palace have reportedly had a long-term interest in Lookman, while Tosun could be another player that catches Hodgson's eye with his side desperately struggling for goals that are not coming from the feet of Wilfried Zaha.
Wan-Bissaka meanwhile, would have to be considered a superb signing for Everton if they can get something done during one of the upcoming windows.
He clearly has an enormous amount of potential having taken so little time to adapt to playing regularly in the Premier League. But it is also clear that the Toffees are not expecting an easy ride as they look to bag his signature.
