Everton are reportedly keeping a close eye on FC Ural midfielder Petrus Boumal ahead of a potential summer move.

The midfielder has been in good form this season and has attracted plenty of plaudits for his consistent displays in the Russian Premier League. It seems Boumal’s form has not gone unnoticed by Everton, too, with French news outlet Foot Mercato citing them with interest.

Boumal only joined Ural in recent times after a strong spell in France with FC Sochaux. However, he has gone from strength to strength in Russia and could be on the move again this summer if reports are to be believed.

Foot Mercato claim that Boumal may be lined up as a potential replacement for Idrissa Gueye should the midfielder opt to leave Everton at the end of the campaign. Although, this looks unlikely, with the Toffees regarding Gueye as one of their most important players.

Boumal is the subject of interest from Belgian outfit Genk, but it seems they will need to offer more than the apparent €2m offer they did during the January transfer window.

Tosun reveals inspiration behind chosing to wear No. 14 .
Cenk Tosun has revealed the thought behind his choice to wear No. 14 for Everton this season, saying his inspiration came from Arsenal legend Thierry Henry. Tosun previously wore the No. 23 jersey with Beşiktaş which Turkish Football claim was in honour of former Chicago Bulls superstar and NBA legend Michael Jordan. However, Séamus Coleman currently dons that number for Everton, and has done since he returned from a loan spell with Blackpool in 2010. The Turkey international striker knew not to ask the Republic of Ireland captain to give up his number, electing to follow a Premier League legend and choose No. 14 instead. Talking to Turkish Sozcu (via Turkish Football), Tosun said; “Seamus Coleman has been number 23 for eight years so I knew to forget about that.” “I really like Seamus, I didn’t even ask, it wouldn’t have been cool.” “I turned my attention to number 14, it has been worn by some of the greats like Thierry Henry so that is the rationale behind my thinking.” Tosun has scored four goals in his last three games, as he looks to finally be beginning to settle into the Toffees’ set-up.
