Norwich City's Max Aarons has starred so far this season.
The first half of Marco Silva's debut season as Everton manager has been a little patchy to say the least, with the last three games a microcosm of the campaign.
A 6-2 home defeat to Tottenham was followed up by a 5-1 thrashing of Burnley, before then losing away at Brighton on Saturday afternoon.
Everton are a work in progress, and director of football Marcel Brands will be looking for potential additions to his side, with a right back desperately needed.
Seamus Coleman, sadly, isn't a top Premier League right back anymore, and with Jonjoe Kenny unconvincing, a right back for the future must be targeted.
Just days ago, The Mirror noted that Arsenal and Tottenham want Norwich City talent Max Aarons, and Everton should certainly be joining that particular race.
Aarons, 18, has flourished in the Norwich first team this season, displaying his pace and attacking ability whilst also being adept defensively for his age.
With Lucas Digne starring at left back, Aarons would fit well as another attack-minded right back with great energy to play in Silva's style, making him potentially ideal for the Toffees.
Everton have focused on young talent from the Football League in recent years, having snapped up Dennis Adeniran, Josh Bowler and Dominic Calvert-Lewin, and Aarons must be the next one on on the list.
Aarons has the potential to challenge Trent Alexander-Arnold and Aaron Wan-Bissaka for England in the coming years, and if Norwich show any sort of inclination to cash in on Aarons, then Everton should be read to challenge Spurs for their right back of the future in a big-money investment.
