Everton close in on rising star Pione Sisto?

FC Midtjylland midfielder Pione Sisto, who has been compared to Christian Eriksen, could be poised for a move to Everton, according to reports.

Danish youngster Pione Sisto is nearing a move to Roberto Martinez's Everton, according to reports.

The 20-year-old FC Midtjylland star was named Danish Superliga Player of the Year in 2014 and scored a hat-trick on his debut for the national Under-21 side last month.

The Ugandan-born midfielder has been tracked by some of Europe's biggest clubs, including Porto, Juventus, Valencia and Werder Bremen, but the Merseyside outfit are confident of securing his signature, claims the Daily Star.

Sisto, who has been compared to compatriot Christian Eriksen, has reportedly been watched by Everton scouts on several occasions in recent weeks.

He made his debut for FC Midtjylland in 2013 and has made 54 appearances in total, scoring 13 goals.
