Luton Town have joined Everton in the race to sign Emiliano Martinez.

That’s according to BT in Denmark, who state that the Hatters have been monitoring the FC Midtjylland midfielder for a while.

Martinez joined the club permanently from Red Bull Bragantino in November and went onto become a regular in the Superliga, however it looks like he could already be on his way out.

The 23-year-old’s form has attracted plenty of interest, with journalist Rodri Vazquez reporting earlier this month that Everton had made an offer to lure the player to Merseyside. It is also believed that West Ham are keen on Martinez.

There has been little update on Martinez’s situation, though it is reported that ‘there has been dialogue’ with Luton Town over a potential move.

Emiliano Martinez could be a risk-free move for Everton

Everton have been linked with plenty of midfielders in recent weeks and are in desperate need of some new signings, with Amadou Onana reportedly eager to leave the club this summer.

While Martinez is relatively unknown in the Premier League, his reported market value is only around £3 million and could prove to be a bargain for the Toffees if he can kick off his move to the top flight with a bang.

However, the Uruguayan certainly wouldn’t be the player they were looking for to replace Onana if he leaves. He is more likely to become a squad player who would take Tom Davies’ place on the bench.

They may also struggle to tempt Martinez to move to Liverpool, with Luton and West Ham both having the pull of the English capital. The latter could also offer the midfielder European football after they won the Europa Conference League last month.
