Everton transfer news as contact made for teenage sensation
Everton have made contact regarding the signing of Genk sensation Bonsu Baah, according to Belgian outlet HLN.
The newspaper noted that the Toffees have informed Genk of their interest in the 18-year-old, but Club Brugge and Brighton are also keen.
Baah only joined Genk earlier this month after shining for Norwegian club Sarpsborg 08 FF, with the winger recently named on the 2023 Golden Boy longlist [90min, 20 June].
HLN noted that interest in young attacker Baah is increasing, with Club Brugge “watching him” as Everton “informs.”
The publication added that the Brighton interest is “concrete” and the Seagulls want to “go far” in their pursuit of the player.

Baah is clearly an exciting talent, with the 18-year-old now one of the hottest prospects in the Belgian league, a division which has helped develop many top talents in recent times.
Genk needed just a few months to be convinced that the winger can be the next big thing, and the youngster could be on the move once again in the near future if his rapid rise can continue at his new club.
Everton need fresh and exciting talent at Goodison Park, and Baah could represent a relatively cheap signing that could help take the Toffees to another level.
But they will more than likely have to wait another year or two to be able to convince Genk to let him go.
More importantly, however, the Toffees seemingly find themselves in a battle for the youngster, with Belgian side Club Brugge and Premier League outfit Brighton both keeping tabs on the teenager.
