Everton are ready to test the waters with a move for FC Barcelona's young starlet Riqui Puig. The English side, are who no strangers to dealings with the Catalan giants, want to sign the La Masia star even if it's only on a temporary basis like Andre Gomes this season. The Toffees hope to push ahead of Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham Hotspur who are also keen on the talented midfielder.
Everton have signed Gerard Deulofeu, Lucas Digne, Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes from Barcelona in recent years and hope the good relationship between the two sides could help seal a deal. They could make a move as soon as next month.
Ernesto Valverde is a huge fan of the player, who made his debut for the senior side this season, but Puig is still considered a member of the B side as opposed to the first team.
