The 20-year-old has been in imperious form of late and his recent displays have brought admiring glances from the top-flight.
Everton's interest caps a meteoric rise for Williams - with the player only signing for Stockport last season from non-league side Hednesford Town.
The versatile defender has proved a pivotal player in The Hatters' surge up the Second Division table, under the impressive tenure of former Northern Ireland boss Sammy Mcllroy.
Stockport will be keen to keep hold of their young talent but a big bid from Goodison Park could see Mcllroy reluctantly accept a sale.
Williams enjoyed a trial spell with fellow Second Division club Oldham Athletic last season but the player failed to agree financial terms.
