Cyle Larin: Linked with a summer switch to Everton

Everton are reportedly tracking MLS frontman Cyle Larin as a potential replacement for star striker Romelu Lukaku.

The Orlando City frontman has been watched by Goodison Park scouts in the last two seasons, during which time he has scored 32 goals.

Toffees boss Ronald Koeman is currently assessing his options ahead of next season, with the prospect that Lukaku may leave after the Belgian refused to sign a new deal.

Larin has been impressing under the guidance of former Everton striker Adrian Heath at Orlando, while Turkish outfit Besiktas are also in the running for his signature, according to a report in The Sun.

The 21-year-old would cost around £2million and Koeman believes that he is capable of swapping the MLS for the top flight in England without any concerns over the leap in quality.
