Everton in pursuit of Leicester, Southampton target Rafa Silva

Everton have joined the chase for Sporting Braga star Rafa Silva.

The Sun reports that Toffees boss Ronald Koeman is showing significant interest in the Portuguese attacking midfielder who is already on the radar of Leicester City and Southampton.

The link with the Saints stems from Koeman's time at St Mary's and that has now carried over to Everton following the Dutchman's shift to Goodison Park.

23-year-old playmaker Silva was part of Portugal's Euro2-16-winning squad and is believed to be available for around £8million.

Silva's ability as a creative central figure or talented wide man make him attractive to Koeman who is looking to restructure Everton's attack ahead of the new Premier League campaign.
