Everton's director of football Steve Walsh has arrived in Milan to discuss the possible transfer of six players - three from AC Milan and three from Inter - according to Sky in Italy.

Walsh was at the San Siro on Wednesday morning discussing potential deals for Carlos Bacca, M'Baye Niang and Gianluca Lapadula of Milan.

Niang spent the second half of last season on loan in the Premier League with Watford, where he scored twice in 16 first-team appearances.

Everton's delegation also discussed the futures of Inter midfielders Ever Banega, Marcelo Brozovic and defender Jeison Murillo.
