Everton to battle Atletico for 'new Di Maria'

Everton have stepped up their interest in Uruguayan wing talent Federico Martinez – who plays for Liverpool of Montevideo.

The 21-year-old is a fast-rising talent from South America whose recent performances have seen him compared to Paris Saint-Germain star Angel Di Maria.

Everton reportedly have competition from Atletico Madrid, but Martinez has a Spanish passport so can move without a work permit.

Arsenal are also understood to have been watching Martinez, who scored a stunning goal against Penarol last month.

His record in Uruguayan football shows he is not prolific, with just one goal in 26 league appearances for Liverpool this year.
