Conor McAleny is close to agreeing a new contract with Everton.
Everton fans will remember him coming on as a sub at the Emirates to make his debut against Arsenal last season. A game were he could have scored. From March he went on loan to Scunthorpe until the end of the season.
With the senior players having a longer Summer rest, the 19-year-old has been involved in all the pre-season fixtures so far.
Having been at the academy from eleven, the coaches obviously think he has what it takes. Conor could be knocking on the door this season and save cash strapped Everton a few bob in the process.
