Everton in the hunt for £20m man?
Everton manager Roberto Martinez is interested in battling Newcastle United for the transfer of Watford striker Troy Deeney, but not at the £20m the Hornets want for their star player.
According to the Mirror, Watford have slapped a huge price tag on their striker to ward off circling teams and the report says that new Newcastle manager Steve McClaren would go to £10m.
Everton may look towards Chelsea striker Patrick Bamford on loan as an alternative to Deeney should the price be out of reach.
26 year old Deeney has an impressive record at Watford, scoring 21 goals in the Championship last season and 77 in 159 starts in all competitions for the Hornets.
Do you believe Everton are even interested in Deeney?
