Blackpool are interested in young Everton forward Fraser Hornby as reported by the Liverpool Echo.

The report claims Everton have received several enquiries from clubs in League One and the Championship about a loan move for the youngster with the Seasiders said to be amongst those that hope to sign the talented striker.

Hornby is currently away in Switzerland with the Toffees first team squad, and Everton are not expected to decide his future until he returns from training camp, but the report suggests the club would be willing to sanction the player spending some time in the EFL next season.

The in-demand youngster is a current Scotland Under-21 international and has made one senior outing for the Merseyside giants so far, having appeared in the Europa League in 2017.

He is rated highly at Everton, who rewarded his impressive displays for their age group teams with a new three-year contract in 2018.

Our View

A young man with a lot of talent Hornby is in demand, but Blackpool is the only club named in the report which suggests their interest is firm.

We are no experts on Premier League Two football, but by all accounts, Hornby has a tremendous physical presence for a young player and also has excellent technical ability with Everton having converted him from a midfield player.

Highly rated by the Toffees, if he does end up at Blackpool, he could be an excellent signing.
