Everton are eyeing Blackburn Rovers winger Junior Hoilett.

The Liverpool Echo says Everton are keeping a close eye on the situation, but that no formal talks have taken place with the player's representatives yet.

Hoilett would not command a transfer fee, but as he is under the age of 23, and as he was a product of Blackburn's youth academy, any club signing him would be required to pay 'development costs'. It is understood that these could run to more than £3million.
