Everton star Enner Valencia has been confronted by police over claims he owes £13,362 in child maintenance, according to a report.

The Sun claim that Valencia, 26, was confronted by police and lawyers following a training session with Ecuador.

It is stated that lawyers had tried to have the on-loan Everton striker arrested after he allegedly failed to pay child support for his five-year-old daughter.

The forward was at the Atahualpa stadium in the city of Quito in Ecuador when the incident occurred.

Valencia escaped arrest in the ordeal despite one lawyer, Paul Marin, claiming to have obtained a judicial order against the forward.

The star joined the Toffees from West Ham this summer on-loan after falling out of favour with the East London outfit.

Valencia has bagged 52 goals and provided 31 assists in 216 matches throughout his club career.

The attacker has featured just three times for the Merseyside outfit since his arrival though, and is yet to score in that time.

The Blues are enjoying life under new manager Ronald Koeman this season and currently sit fifth in the Premier League after picking up 14 points from seven games this term.
