Everton scouted Josh Maja on 15th December & 3rd November

Everton had a representative present at a pair of recent Bordeaux matches to watch Nigerian attacker Josh Maja, according to freelance journalist Ignazio Genuardi.

They watched Les Girondins beat Nantes 2-0 on 3rd November in a match that Josh Maja did not start but came off of the bench in the second half.

They also got a chance to see the ex-Sunderland man in action on 15th December in a defeat against Strasbourg at home (0-1). Here, Maja did not impress and was ultimately hauled off for Hwang Ui-Jo.

On neither occasion did Maja find the net and we would be astounded if British tabloid claims linking the Toffees with a concrete bid for the player next month were grounded in a shred of truth. A player they are surveilling, yes, but no more than that at this stage.
