Everton watching Lille striker Rafael Leao

Everton are interested in Lille striker Rafael Leao.

The Daily Mail says Everton have checked on Leao as they look to add two new forwards this summer.

The 19-year-old only joined Lille last summer as he forced a free transfer from Sporting Lisbon after fans invaded their training ground and assaulted players.

Manchester City had been tracking the Portugal Under 21 international after he broke into Sporting's first team but Leao took up an offer of regular football from Lille where he has impressed with seven goals this season.
