Everton are in a race with Manchester United to sign Sheffield United teenager Dominic Calvert-Lewin, according to a report.
The Mirror claim that the Toffees have revived their interest in the 19-year-old forward after they were snubbed by the League One outfit earlier in the window.
United are also interested in Calvert-Lewin, but it is said that Ronald Koeman’s side believes that they can beat the Premier League giants to the signing of the youngster.
The youngster has made one appearance for Sheffield United in the new campaign with an 83rd minute substitute appearance in the Capital One Cup against Crewe.
He was left out of the Bramall Lane’s side Checkatrade Trophy match squad on Tuesday evening against Leicester’s Academy, which would have normally been an ideal match to give a youngster some much-needed senior experience.
Clavert-Lewin has two years left on his contract at Sheffield United and he spent the first half of last season in League Two with Northampton, where he scored eight goals in 26 encounters.
Ex Northampton boss Chris Wilder is now the manager of United and he will be keen to keep hold of a playerwho he rates so highly.
However, the wealth of the Premier League duo could tempt the Yorkshire side to sell their upcoming star.
