EVERTON are eyeing a summer move for Sheffield United hot-shot Iliman Ndiaye.
Ndiaye has been instrumental in Sheffield United’s push for promotion back to the Premier League.
The 23-year-old has scored 12 goals and provided eight assists in all competitions.
He also grabbed the winner against Tottenham in the FA Cup earlier this month.
Ndiaye can operate as a central striker, out on the wing or in attacking midfield.
And that versatility makes him an attractive proposition to a number of Premier League and foreign clubs.
Scouts from Everton, West Ham and Newcastle have watched Ndiaye in recent weeks.
All three clubs are planning to bolster their attacking options for next season.
But the Toffees are believed to be keenest on the Senegal international.
Ndiaye, who played against England at the World Cup, is set to enter the final year of his contract at Bramall Lane.

And if the Blades fail to win promotion they could cash in on their prize asset this summer.
Everton could also find themselves in the Championship which would dash their hopes of a deal.
But Saturday’s 1-0 win over Brentford lifted Sean Dyche’s side out of the relegation zone.
