Everton boss David Moyes is eyeing Seattle Sounders starlet Steve Zakuani.

The Mirror says Zakuani, 22, has agreed to train with Everton and may be allowed to gain Premier League experience during the MLS close season.

Zakuani said: “As for my off season plans, I plan to spend a few days in London visiting old friends and family before going up to Liverpool to train with Everton for a few days.”

DR Congo international Zakuani, who was brought up in London from the age of four, was a huge hit in the MLS over the past two years and actually was on the books at Arsenal as a junior.
