And it is understood that a move to Goodison Park could pull through for the 20-year-old because he shares the same agent with international teammate Alex Iwobi and Ademola Lookman.

The former Sunderland striker scored an emphatic hat-trick in his club's 6-0 win over Nîmes Olympique on 3 December, making him the only Nigerian to score a hat-trick this season.

Reports also claim another Premier League giant Chelsea are also interested in bringing the Nigerian to west London.
