Everton are now interested in signing 18-year-old attacker Isaac Babadi from Dutch side PSV Eindhoven ahead of the summer transfer window.

The teenager, who scored against Everton U21’s in last season’s Premier League International Cup as the Blues fell to a 3-0 defeat, is also linked with a host of clubs in the Premier League.

Indeed, alongside Everton, the likes of Brentford, Crystal Palace and Brighton & Hove Albion are reportedly interested, as well as interest from German side Eintracht Frankfurt.

That is according to Dutch publication Eindhovens Dagblad, who confirm that PSV are desperate to keep hold of the prodigious talent, who has just one year remaining on his current deal.

Babadi is an ambitious young player, who once confirmed in an interview with Football Talent Scout that his biggest footballing dream is “Winning the Ballon d’Or, Champions League, and World Cup”.

Babadi perhaps not quite ready for Everton first team, but could be a promising star for the future

The 18-year-old scored six goals and provided five assists in 34 games in all competitions for Eindhoven’s youth side last season and is certainly a player to watch for the future.

Indeed, Everton must invest wisely following years of poor recruitment, and securing players for development as well as those who can have an immediate impact will be key for the future stability of the club.

A player such as Isaac Babadi would be a great addition to Everton, and would no doubt be knocking on the door of Sean Dyche’s senior squad with the Toffees in need of attacking options.

Given his contract situation with the Dutch side, Babadi should be available for a reasonable price, and could be a player Everton develop into a top European talent.

However, what the fee would be for the young man’s signature remains to be seen as the transfer rumour mill gathers pace.
