Everton to bid big for Real Sociedad striker Willian Jose

Everton are chasing Real Sociedad striker Willian Jose.

The Sunday Mirror says Everton boss Ronald Koeman is lining up replacement targets for Romelu Lukaku – with £27million-rated Brazilian star Willian Jose on his hit list.

The Real Sociedad striker is having a good season in La Liga and has bagged nine goals and made three assists for the Basque side.

Everton made a detailed check on the 25-year-old attacker in Sociedad's 1-0 defeat at Atletico Madrid last Tuesday as they prepare to narrow down their options.

The Brazil Under-20 striker left his homeland in 2014 and spent a six month trial stint at Real Madrid before short spells at Real Zaragoza and Las Palmas.
