Everton U23 coach David Unsworth is eager to raid the youth transfer market this summer.
The Liverpool Echo says Unsworth has confirmed plans to delve into the transfer market this summer to bolster his title winning squad.
Sheffield Wednesday striker George Hirst and Newcastle defender Lewis Gibson are understood to be among his targets.
England youth international Hirst, the son of Owls legend David Hirst, is also interesting Liverpool.
Gibson, meanwhile, attracted enquiries from Everton in January and remains on the radar.
