Everton boss Roberto Martinez is getting serious about Hoffenheim attacker Roberto Firmino.

The Daily Mail says scouts watched the 22-year-old score in Saturday's 3-3 draw with Bayern Munich and the playmaker again impressed with his all-round performance.

He has been watched by Inter Milan, Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City this season and last week agreed a two-year extension to a contract that was due to run out in 2015.
