Everton have made a move for Real Madrid midfielder Sergio Canales.

The Mirror says Everton have rejoined the race to land Canales.

QPR, Aston Villa, German side Wolfsburg and Spain's Villarreal are among the posse of other clubs chasing the 20-year-old.

Everton boss David Moyes hopes to sign the playmaker on a season-long loan after it was confirmed this week that he is not in Real coach Jose Mourinho's first-team plans.

Villarreal have made an offer to buy the starlet, but Real do not want to sell and would rather send him abroad on loan.
