As per a report from Daily Mail writer Dominic King, Premier League outfit Everton are keeping tabs on Benfica star Andrija Zivkovic.
Zivkovic, a versatile 22-year-old attacker, can play either on the wing or behind a striker.
He has been on Benfica’s books since 2016, when the Serb made the move to Portugal from Partizan Belgrade.
After racking up 10 league starts on his way to the Primeira Liga title during his debut campaign at the Estádio da Luz, Zivkovic was handed a further 17 starts last season, going on to notch 3 goals and 4 assists as the Eagles surrendered their Portuguese league crown to Porto.
However, the current campaign has proved a difficult one for Zivkovic, with the 13-time capped Serbian international yet to start a single fixture across all competitions.
As such, as per the aforementioned report from Dominic King, one club eager to take advantage of the technically-gifted wide-man’s situation at Benfica are Premier League outfit Everton.
Toffees’ boss Marco Silva is said to be behind the interest of the Merseysiders, with King adding that Zivkovic would likely demand a transfer fee of at least £20 million:
Everton are interested in Benfica’s Andrija Zivkovic. He’s a Serbia international and plays as a No 10 or on the wing. Marco Silva has been charting his progress, as have other PL clubs. Zivkovic would cost £20m+ 🔵

Everton are not the only English club to have been named as admirers of Zivkovic’s talents, though.
This past summer saw both Arsenal and Manchester United heavily-linked with a move for the Serb, with the Gunners thought to have been particularly keen.
