Everton face serious competition for Palermo’s Ilija Nestorovski after Sevilla had the striker watched.

The Macedonia forward has been linked with a move to Goodison as a replacement for Romelu Lukaku who looks all set to move on this summer.

Ronald Koeman has scouted the 27-year-old, with Calciomercato in February claiming that Everton watched him in action against Juventus.

Now though La Liga side Sevilla are interested in the player, according to Estadio Deportivo and they have watched him in action recently against Sampdoria in a 1-1 draw at the Renzo Barbera stadium in which Nestorovksi scored for the hosts.

Lazio, Atletico Madrid and Fiorentina are also tracking the forward, who has netted 10 times in 33 appearances this season, whilst also collecting three assists.

Nestorovski will have two years remaining on his contract in June, but the player is believed to be ready to move on, despite being in his first season in Serie A.

He joined the Serie A side after a prolific spell at Croation side Inter Zapresic, scoring 69 times in just 90 appearances for the club.

The Palermo president is looking for between 15 and 20million euros – a price tag that is unlikely to put the Toffees off with the fee from the sale of Lukaku expected to reach around £70million.
