Everton are chasing FC Copenhagen striker Andreas Cornelius.

The Sun says the £5million-rated striker has hit 20 goals this season to put FC Copenhagen on the brink of the Danish title.

Goodison boss David Moyes has been on the player’s trail for months. And club spies checked on the 6ft 4in frontman against Aarhus last Sunday.

Cornelius, 20, said: “It’s a big pat on the back that Everton are watching me “I know the club, I’ve seen them a few times and the Premier League is a great competition.”
