Everton hope to beat off some stiff competition to sign Sweden U21 midfielder Rasmus Elm this week.

According to the Daily Mail, Elm was shown round Goodison Park by David Moyes on Friday along with his girlfriend, mother and agent. The 21 year old, who starred in the recent European Under-21 Championships, is also coveted by a host of European clubs, including Ajax and PSV Eindhoven.

The Kalmar midfielder has long been on Roy Hodgson’s radar as well. He tried to sign Elm in January without success and had been rumoured to be considering attempting to conclude another deal to bring him to Fulham this summer. Everton are confident of landing their man – so watch this one closely.
