Everton boss Roberto Martinez is being monitored by Barcelona bigwigs.The Sun says Barca apparently see the Spaniard as a candidate to be the long-term boss at the Nou Camp, and have been impressed by his start to his Toffees career.

Martinez already has a relationship in place with the club after forging an agreement to take Spanish starlet Gerard Deulofeu on loan for the season this year.

Incumbent coach Gerardo Martino has a contract until the end of next season, but Martinez could be the main man going forward.
