A report claims that Porto defender Eder Militao is wanted by Everton, despite his price tag climbing to £17m following his first cap for Brazil.

Premier League side Everton are keeping close tabs on versatile Brazil and Porto defender Eder Militao, according to a report.

The 20-year-old made his senior bow for the Selecao's senior side earlier this month in their 5-0 win over El Salvador.

Militao, who can fill it at right-back, centre-back or in defensive midfield, has seen his price tag climb to £17m after his breakthrough at international level.

Brazilian outlet UOL suggests that Everton are still tempted to make a move for the highly-rated youngster, however, having sent scouts to watch him twice in the space of a week.

Toffees chiefs are said to have been in attendance for Porto's 1-1 draw with Schalke in the Champions League and the 2-0 win over Vitoria Setubal four days later, with Militao playing a full part in both matches.

Despite only arriving at the Estadio do Dragao in August on a five-year deal, the report claims that the Sao Paulo academy product could be on his way out next January if the right offer is tabled.
