Everton rival Brighton, Aston Villa for Brentford fullback Rico Henry

The Premier League battle for Brentford left-back Rico Henry is intensifying.

The Mirror says Everton are the latest club to show interest in Henry.

Brighton, Aston Villa and Leicester are all considering moves for the 23-year-old this summer, but the Merseysiders are now circling as well and the chance to link up with new boys James Rodriguez and Allan at Everton will appeal massively to the player.

Brentford are not keen to lose Henry and see him as vital to their hopes of winning promotion this season after narrowly missing out last time.

That has not put off his suitors, though, and as the transfer window edges closer to closing the pressure on them to do business will intensify.
