Manchester United starlet Adnan Januzaj is wanted by Everton on-loan, according to Liverpool Echo.
The Belgium International saw first team chances come first-team chances hard to come by under new manager Louis van Gaal, and this has reignited the Toffees’ interest who were rebuffed to sign Januzaj on a temporary deal in January.

Paris Saint-Germain are also known to be keen on signing the 20-year-old, who signed a new five year contract in October 2013 during David Moyes’ reign.
Roberto Martinez is a known admirer of Belgian’s, and wants to add Januzaj to his current contingent of Red Devils of Romelu Lukaku, Kevin Mirallas and David Henen.
“The Belgium FA put in a very strong plan 10 years ago and developed a way of developing players in a 4-2-3-1 system that gave players a really strong technical education.
“Then they have shown the right mentality.
“They are capable of moving abroad at a young age and finding the way to be important for the team.
“They are really strong performers and that combination of that programme form the Belgian FA and the mentality of that generation has created an exceptional group of players who are going to be hugely successful at international level.
“As individuals they are great to work with, they are fighters and know how to find a way to be affective for the team but always in a professional way,” the former Wigan boss said.
The Toffees signed Barcelona youngster Gerard Deulofeu, but are yet to conclude a permanent deal for former loanee Aaron Lennon, which might present Januzaj with a starting spot in the Blues’ line-up.
The former Anderlecht man’s agent Dirk de Vriese earlier had quelled speculation of his client leaving Old Trafford.
“This is total nonsense. Adnan is feeling good at Manchester United and they don’t want him to leave the club,”
“He is considered still as their biggest talent since many years.
“There was a lot of top teams asking to buy him and a lot of sub-top teams to loan him but he will stay at Manchester United to become a legend in the club,” the agent had told Sport Witness.
