Everton now want to sign Leeds United attacker Jack Harrison as Sean Dyche looks to add creativity to his starting XI.
Fletcher said: “They (Everton) are looking at Jack Harrison at Leeds United. This is a player that does interest the club is my understanding.
He’s (Harrison) certainly a player that’s really talented from Manchester City to Leeds United and they (Everton) want to strengthen at the front end of the pitch.
Not just strikers but also wingers as well and there’s the potential for a (number) 10 in there too. Jack Harrison with that £16m release clause is set to be activated, if not by Everton then by another club”

Harrison could plug midfield creativity leak for Everton
Indeed, Everton desperately need to invest wisely in the club’s attacking players this summer, as Sean Dyche dragged the Blues to Premier League safety with limited options at his disposal at the end of last season.
Harrison could be a shrewd signing from the Everton boss, with the 26-year-old contributing 16 goal involvements in 40 games in all competitions for Leeds United last season.
With five Premier League goals, plus one in the FA Cup, Harrison scored six times for Leeds last year, contributing seven Premier League assists and a further three in the FA Cup taking his total goal creations to 10.
While at least one forward is a must for Everton this summer, Sean Dyche must also add creativity from midfield, and Jack Harrison could well provide the output that has been missing.
At £16m, Jack Harrison could be a fantastic signing for the Toffees.
