EVERTON are considering a move for Brazilian winger Tete.
The 23-year-old, who is contracted to Shakhtar Donetsk unit December but able to suspend his contract due to war, spent the second half of last season on loan at Leicester.
The Toffees were interested in a deal in January and are thinking about returning for him this summer.
Tete scored one goal in 14 appearances for the Foxes last season and could not help them beat the drop.
Italian champions Napoli, as well as Serie A rivals Lazio, have also held talks over a move for the winger.
Everton have already added Ashley Young and Arnaut Danjuma to their squad this summer.
