Gareth Southgate has kept an eye on his form this term, watching him in person at Goodison Park last month.
Tottenham are trying to get a deal over the line for highly-rated Club Brugge winger Antonio Nusa this month.
The Lilywhites remain in talks with the Belgian side, who are said to be demanding £25m for the 18-year-old’s signature.

Royal, 25, is happy at Spurs, but the Saudi Pro League side could launch a new bid.
Tottenham may consider offers for Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg before the end of the month.
But they will only let him leave on a permanent deal or on a loan with an obligation to buy.
