Despite being relegated with Palermo last season, Everton target Ilija Nestorovski is still getting some attention from the Italian media.

The club captain and striker scored in the 1-0 win over Perugia on Tuesday, and is back showing some good form. That was his second goal this season.

That’s why Calcio Mercato has a story on him today, this time saying that several Premier League clubs are keeping an eye on the player.

But it’s also said that Palermo are not keen on letting him go in January, and that’s the reason why a winter transfer is highly unlikely.

Still, it doesn’t sound that impossible, as they claim his price would be €10m. That may even sound a lot for a club in the Italian second division, but certainly not for a Premier League or even Championship side.

Back in February, reports from the Italian press said Everton would be ready to spend £17m on him. So in case the interest is still on, that should be much more than enough this time.

But how would the Everton faithful react to such a player when the club, and Ronald Koeman, genuinely need a top class striker? Probably not so well.
