According to reports in the Spanish media, Everton are being linked with Almeria keeper Diego Alves. Reports in the Spanish press suggest the Toffees are following the 24-year-old Brazilian, who has previously spoken of his desire to secure a switch to a 'big club'.

But the shot-stopper is also being linked to other clubs, including Fiorentina and Villarreal.

Meanwhile, Almeria's president Alfongo Garcia insists the club would only consider an offer of £11.88m for the stopper, who has made 15 top-flight appearances this term.
