Premier League interest is arriving for Gil Vicente midfielder Diogo Viana.

The Mirror says Everton boss Roberto Martinez is due to send scouts this weekend to watch Viana in action this Sunday against Braga.

Viana, 23, starred and scored last weekend for Gil Vicente against Benfica.

But Everton are still reluctant to meet the player's £2.1million price tag.

Aston Villa have also been monitoring Viana but are unlikely to follow up their interest before Monday's deadline.
