Everton are ready to battle for the signing of Daniel Jebbison.

The Toffees have joined the likes of Juventus and Borussia Dortmund in the race to sign the Sheffield United striker, according to 90min.

After rising through their academy, Jebbison made his senior debut for the Blades in May 2021 and became the youngest ever goalscorer in his first start in the Premier League when he scored against Everton a week later.

The teenager attracted plenty of interest and he was reportedly the subject of a £5 million bid from the Toffees, while The Athletic claimed that he was a better prospect than Dominic Calvert-Lewin at his age.

Jebbison is yet to quite live up to the hype surrounding him, netting only one league goal as Sheffield United were promoted from the Championship last season.

Despite his performance in front of goal, Sheffield United coach Jack Lester was full of praise for their academy product earlier this year.

Lester said: “People forget that he’ll still be a teenager at the start of next season so he’s developing really well. He’s got some fantastic physical attributes and we will continue to work to develop him.”

Everton will also face competition from Bayer Leverkusen, Newcastle United, Tottenham and Aston Villa for his signature.

The forward is entering the final 12 months of his contract and could be available at a cut price this summer if the Blades can’t tie him down to a new deal, while he could also sign pre-contract agreement with an overseas club in six months time.

Daniel Jebbison wouldn’t solve Everton’s goal problem

Daniel Jebbison is clearly a very talented player with still plenty to give and, at only 19 years old, he is far from the finished article.

The youngster is certainly one for the future and the amount of huge clubs interested in him shows exactly how much potential he has.

However, the forward definitely wouldn’t solve Everton’s goalscoring problems anytime soon and has also struggled with injuries.

It’s unclear how much Jebbison could be available for, however the Toffees’ financial troubles will already limit their summer spending and it seems unlikely that they will fancy splashing the cash on a player that has scored three goals in 34 appearances for United.
