Chelsea are reportedly considering recalling loan star Marco van Ginkel from his spell at AC Milan, having been disappointed by his lack of first team action for the San Siro side, as reported by La Gazetta dello Sport.
As a result, they could even be happy to see their midfield starlet move to another Premier League side, in an attempt to continue his development closer to home.
This could put Everton on alert, with the Merseyside club having shown interest in signing Van Ginkel prior to his initial move to Chelsea.
The Dutch midfielder has struggled since his move to the Premier League leaders, having been hit with an unfortunate injury shortly after signing, causing him to lose a possible place in the first team.
This recent spell at Milan has led to even more misfortune for the player, with the 21 year old playing only once in the league for the Italian side.
