Everton and Southampton fans will be seeing a lot of each other in the Football Transfer Tavern as they are now fighting over the same player.
According to The Mirror, scouts representing both Everton and Southampton were sent abroad to monitor Newcastle star Georginio Wijnaldum on international duty.
The Toffees and Saints are both weighing up a move for the talented midfielder and are looking to gather as much information as possible before making a decision.
Holland travelled to Austria for a friendly which they won 2-0, with Wijnaldum netting the second goal.
