Everton’s highly-prized young full back Dan Gosling has emerged as a shock target for Standard Liege.
Gosling’s current contract at Goodison runs out in the summer and, as a new deal is yet to be agreed upon, the versatile defender/midfielder stands to become a free agent come July.
There is also Premier League interest in the England U21 man but any domestic transfer may end up going to a tribunal to agree a fee, whilst a move to Belgium would be free of such sanctions.
It is being reported that Liege are keen to open initial pre-contract talks with Gosling within the next few weeks.
