Everton are interested in signing San Lorenzo youngster Adolfo Gaich, according to reports.
Gaich scored three goals for Argentina at the Under-20 World Cup earlier this summer as his country crashed out at the last-16 stage.
He has made just a handful of appearances for Argentine side San Lorenzo.
Pablo Caro, Gaich’s agent, revealed his client would favour a move to a European club.
He said: “We spoke with clubs in Italy. The Everton issue isn’t clear yet.

“The truth is that Gaich is on the list of many clubs, but still nothing concrete. Looking to the future, one would like him to go through the European market.
“I think one has to look for that to find the fullness of the player.”
Everton’s forwards struggled for goals last season with Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Cenk Tosun scoring a combined total of just 12 goals.
