Everton hand trials to controversial American youngster Omar Salgado
American prodigy Omar Salgado is being chased by Everton.
The striker, 17, has been handed a two-week trial by Goodison boss David Moyes.
He caused a stir in Mexico when he opted to leaving Chivas to play for USA's youth side.
Chivas' youth policy means all their players must be eligible to play for Mexico - but Salgado opted for USA, meaning he left the club.
Everton have strong links with America forged in recent years, and in the last few weeks Salgado's US Under-20 team-mate, goalkeeper Zac Macmath, also spent time with the Toffees.
