Everton keen on Hughes

Everton have joined their Merseyside neighbours Liverpool in the chase for Derby County midfielder Will Hughes, according to the Express.

The England under 21 international has impressed was the subject of interest from Brendan Rodgers men during the summer, though no official approach was made for the player.

Rams manager Nigel Clough has valued the player, who despite being just 18 years old has already made fifty first team appearances, at around £10m.

In Gareth Barry and James McCarthy, Everton manager Roberto Martinez brought in two central midfielders on transfer deadline to counter the loss of Belgium international Marouane Fellaini, though it appears that he is keen to add further depth in that position.

Hughes has drawn comparisons with Steven Gerrard, which may suggest why Brendan Rodgers is keen on taking him to Anfield, with the Reds skipper set to turn 34 soon after this campaign comes to an end.
