Everton are hopeful of heading off competition from Ipswich Town and Crystal Palace for Jaden Philogene after the winger indicated a willingness to join them.

Everton have an agreement in place with Philogene’s club Hull City and are awaiting the go-ahead to sign the 22-year-old.

Mail Sport revealed last month that Everton were lining up a £16million offer for the former Aston Villa youngster who has also attracted interest from Barcelona.

However, there has been competition with Ipswich offering over £35m for Philogene and his teammate, centre back, Jacob Greaves, who was undergoing a medical with the Portman Road club on Sunday.

West Ham also admire Philogene but it is Palace who have been considered more serious in their interest.
