Everton and Newcastle United have both entered the race for Netherlands winger Memphis Depay, putting them in direct competition with Manchester United, as reported by the Daily Star.
The Premier League pair have reportedly entered into the war along with north London side Tottenham Hotspur, with all four clubs hoping to sign the 20 year old wing wizard.
Depay is highly rated, but became known on a wider level after his excellent displays at the World Cup for the Netherlands.
The PSV Eindhoven star is expected to fetch an incredible £18 million, with a series of English suitors all chasing his signature.
His current manager, Phillip Cocu, has even admitted that there will inevitably be a sale of Depay.
Despite only being young, Depay has bagged 36 goals in only 97 appearances for the Dutch giants since debuting for the side in 2011.
Newcastle have been in exceptional form recently, rising to fifth in the Premier League.
