FC Braga's £1.5million-rated Elderson Echiejile is interesting Everton.

The Mirror says Everton have identified Echiejile as a possible replacement for Manchester United target Leighton Baines.

Baines, 28, continues to be linked with a switch to Old Trafford which would see him reunited with his former boss David Moyes.

Toffees boss Roberto Martinez is privately bracing himself for the departure of the England full-back and is drawing up contingency plans.
