Tottenham Hotspur and Everton are both interested in signing Uruguayan forward Diego Rossi.

The 23 year-old is expected to cost around £10 million and is currently playing for Los Angeles FC in American Major League Soccer.

Although he has played for his country through all the age groups up until Under-23s, Rossi is not yet a full international although he has been included in senior squads.

Armenia, where his mother’s family come from, have attempted to call him up. Rossi’s father is of Italian descent.

Rossi is a highly-rated finisher and won the MLS Golden Boot as top scorer. The striker left Uruguayan club Penarol to join LAFC in 2017 as a stepping stone to moving to Europe and is now attracting Premier League interest.

Carlos Vinicius’s loan spell at Tottenham has not been a success and has come to an end, with the club having an option to sign him permanently from Benfica for £36m. 

Everton have released Josh King who they signed from Bournemouth in January but who has failed to make an impact.
