Everton tracking PSV Eindhoven English winger Noni Madueke

Everton are “tracking” PSV Eindhoven forward Noni Madueke with the England Under-21 international “likely to leave” the Dutch side this summer, according to 90min.

The 20-year-old managed nine goals and six assists in the 2021/22 season and has previously been on the books of Crystal Palace and Tottenham.

90min reported on Wednesday that Everton are tracking the winger along with Newcastle, Leeds, Tottenham, Leicester and Wolves.

Furthermore, 90min suggest that PSV “face a battle to hang onto him” going forward.

A move for Madueke is certainly the type of move the Toffees should be pursuing if funds permit.

He’s a young player who is far from the finished product but has a good amount of first-team experience for such a young age.

Madueke is the type of player that Lampard should back himself to develop and turn into an asset for the Toffees going forward.

The fact there is extensive interest in the winger should indicate that the winger is clearly a real talent and whoever lands him has a serious player on their hands.

The sad reality is that Everton won’t be at the front of the queue for his signature.

It is unlikely that the Toffees’ interest will materialise into anything concrete, but let’s hope their interest in the 20-year-old is a sign of good things to come at Goodison Park.

It would certainly be refreshing to see some young, up-and-coming talent come through the doors at Everton and show a change in recruitment style has been adopted this summer.
