Everton fans will have been truly disappointed with how things have gone this season so far and will be looking for the club to make additions in the summer to improve the squad after a couple of flat campaigns.
Marco Silva appears to be favouring the Portuguese market at the moment, with the Toffees having had officials watch a number of matches in recent months, and it appears they continued to keep close tabs on individuals on Wednesday.
What’s the News?
According to a report by Record, via Sport Witness, Everton were just one of a number of clubs in attendance as Porto edged past AS Roma in their Champions League match to reach the quarter-finals.
However, the report does not appear to suggest who the club could have been watching in the match, with a number of players on show that are thought to have attracted attention at some stage in the past.
Realistically, Everton could look to improve a number of areas in their squad in the summer as there are plenty of positions on the pitch that need strengthening.
Marega, who had an excellent game for Porto on Wednesday night, assisted the first goal before doubling the scoreline and would be someone who could be ideal to lead the line for the Toffees as the likes of Cenk Tosun continue to fail to impress with their performances.
As mentioned, Brahimi is also another who Everton could potentially target to improve their attacking ranks and the Algeria international could also be available on a free transfer as he continues to refuse to a new deal – although he did not have the best of games against Roma.
