Everton, Barcelona target Lemos admits Las Palmas exit plans

Everton have been encouraged in their interest for Las Palmas defender Mauricio Lemos.

The youngster attracted bids from Everton and Barcelona over the summer, though Las Palmas insisted he would only leave for his buyout clause.

Lemos told AS: "The truth is I'm used to moving, I always aspire to grow fast and to grab new opportunities.

"I am grateful to Las Palmas for the opportunity they gave me, but one aspires to more and the idea is to take a little step.

"What about a team in the Champions League? Hopefully. That will be the best possible thing."
