While he is yet to make a first-team appearance, striker Eppiah has attracted the interests of the likes of Bournemouth, West Ham and Stoke, according to ESPN.

Craig Shakespeare, who left Leicester earlier this season, has reportedly been encouraging new Everton boss Sam Allardyce to have a look at the 19-year-old.

Shakespeare regards him as one of the best young players to come through Leicester’s ranks in the time he was associated with the club.

Eppiah scored the winner for Leicester against Everton in their recent Premier League cup clash.

But despite that, the forward has not made the breakthrough into the first team.

Everton have a good record of blooding Finch Farm youngsters in recent seasons, with the likes of Jonjo Kenny, Tom Davies and Dominc Calvert-Lewin all getting big first-team experience.

But with Championship and foreign clubs also interested in Eppiah, he might want to consider how he will get the most playing time.

Meanwhile Leicester fans are braced for the departure of Riyad Mahrez, after it was revealed the Foxes winger is determined to quit the club regardless of whether or not he gets offered a new contract.
