Everton are interested in Sheffield United attacker lliman Ndiaye who could be in line for a ‘big move in the summer’.

That is according to transfer window extraordinaire Fabrizio Romano who shared via his Twitter account that the ‘incredible’ forward is attracting interest at Everton.

Ndiaye is under contract at Bramhall Lane until the summer of 2024 and Romano now states that Everton could swoop for the forward this summer, but there is also interest from Italy for the Senegalese international.

Romano tweeted: “Many clubs are following the progress of Sheffield United talent lliman Ndiaye, expected to get big move in the summer. #Transfers Everton are interested in Ndiaye, Italian clubs are well informed too.”

The 23-year-old has a total of 14 goals in 48 games in all competitions for the Blades so far this season, with 13 of those coming in Championship games. The 23-year-old has also contributed 9 assists.

Ndiaye could bring creativity back to Everton side lacking imagination

Everton have struggled creatively all season and are the lowest scorers in the Premier League, having failed to replace Richarlison following his £60m move to Spurs last summer.

Indeed, the £15m arrival of Neal Maupay from Brighton & Hove Albion has been a disappointment, with the Frenchman scoring just once all campaign.

The persistent injuries to Dominic Calvert-Lewin has seen the England international feature in just 12 Premier League games this year, but was a predictable and therefore avoidable issue for the Blues.

A failure to recruit in the January transfer window is proving costly for the Toffees, who currently occupy 18th place in the league table and face a second successive scrap for top-flight status.

With just a year remaining on his current deal, Ndiaye could be an exciting and cost effective purchase for Everton this summer as Sean Dyche looks to rebuild his stunted forward line.
