Everton have entered the race to sign Austrian midfielder Hannes Wolf but will face competition from Arsenal, Southampton and Spurs.

According to the Mirror, the Premier League trio have joined Marco Silva’s side in their pursuit with the January window fast approaching.

The attacking midfielder has earned rave reviews for his performances in the Austrian Bundesliga.

Wolf rose to prominence last season by scoring 12 goals as Salzburg secured a place in the semi-finals of the Europa League.

Having been likened to Tottenham midfield maestro Christian Eriksen, it is easy to see why clubs are scrambling to sign him.

Silva’s side have lacked something in the final third this season and Wolf’s goal threat could go a long way to easing the burden that currently falls on the likes of Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson.

Everton will be looking to build on an impressive start to the season in January, with many tipping the Toffees to secure a place in the Europa League this season.
