Sources: Everton and Crystal Palace plot moves for Ederson Silva

Everton and Crystal Palace have set their sights on Salernitana midfielder Ederson Silva, Football Insider understands.

The 22-year-old has caught the eye of the two Premier League clubs after an impressive second half of the campaign in Serie A.

A recruitment source has told Football Insider that both Everton and Palace are plotting moves for Ederson this summer.

The centre-midfielder joined Salernitana from Corinthians in January and made an instant impact on the side.

He made 15 league appearances for the Serie A club and helped them narrowly avoid relegation.

Ederson has been capped by Brazil at Under-20 level and is tipped for a call-up to the senior squad in the near future.
