Everton have had a bid for Russian starlet Denis Cheryshev turned down by Real Madrid according to reports in Spain.
The report in the Spanish media claims that Everton boss David Moyes made a £4.8m offer for the 21-year-old winger last week but it was rebuffed by the Spanish champions.
Although yet to appear for Real Madrid's first team, he has been outstanding for their B team and made his international debut for Russia in their draw with the USA last week.
Cheryshevis in the squad for their clash with Manchester City in the Champions League on Wednesday night and boss Jose Mourinho regards him as one of the brightest young players at the club.
