EXCLUSIVE By Pete O’Rourke
Everton attacker Anthony Evans is being lined up for a deadline-day loan move to Blackpool, Football Insider understands.
Evans is highly-regarded at Everton having come through the ranks at Goodison Park and he is under contract until 2020.
A source close to the Merseyside giants has told Football Insider that a number of Football League clubs have made enquiries about Evans’ availability on loan this month.
But north-west outfit Blackpool are very hopeful of luring the attacking midfielder to Bloomfield Road as they close in on a deal before the 11pm transfer cut-off.
The 20-year-old has yet to make his first-team debut for Everton, but he has been a regular for the club’s Under-23 sides in the last couple of seasons.
Evans enjoyed a spell out on loan at League Two Morecambe in the 2016/17 season, scoring two goals and making two assists in his 14 games for the club.
