Moyes eyes former Tranmere star
Everton are hoping to persuade teenage forward Dale Jennings to return to Merseyside if his career fails to take off at Bayern Munich.
Toffees boss David Moyes had Jennings watched last week and has told his scouting network that he does not want to miss out on the ex-Tranmere Rovers starlet for a second time, after the German giants swooped last summer.
Jennings joined the Champions League finalists in a shock move from Tranmere, in a deal which brought the League One club a £600,000 downpayment and add-ons, which could see them receive as much as £1.8million.
Bayern, who do not operate scouts in England, were tipped off about his talent by ex-Bayern midfielder Didi Hamann after he witnessed Jennings rip his MK Dons side apart in October of last season.
However, the 19-year-old has not been an instant success in Bavaria after being assigned to Bayern's reserve team squad, which plays in the regional leagues of German football - a standard he compares to League Two.
Jennings' ambition to join the likes of Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery in the Bayern first-team squad next season has been hampered by injuries to his groin and ankle, restricting his appearances and time on the field - he only lasted an hour last weekend.
The former Liverpool trainee, who left Anfield aged 15, admits he is struggling to adapt to the culture in Germany and told The Independent recently that he is not getting to grips with the language either.
"The language is a bit of a struggle - I'm still terrible, I can't speak a word of German," he said. "I'm still going to lessons but I left school at a young age and have never really had much of an education.
"It's a completely different style of football and this year has got me used to the way the Germans play. It's a bit slower, it's less physical. I'm a bit aggressive so I've picked up a few yellow cards since I've been here so that has taken some getting used to."
