Everton will register their interest in signing Hal Robson-Kanu, according to a report.
The 27-year-old free agent wrote himself into Wales folklore with a sensational goal to put his team 2-1 ahead in their momentous 3-1 quarter-final win over Belgium on Friday night.
The Sun claim the Merseysiders are keeping close tabs on Robson-Kanu, who has attracted interest from four Premier League outfits as well as Celtic and clubs from China and the UAE.
It is said that new manager Ronald Koeman has shortlisted the versatile forward and that talks will take place once his Euro 2016 commitments are over.
Everton are interested in Robson-Kanu even though Koeman has a £100million transfer kitty this summer, more than any Goodison manager in history.
