Everton are keen to sign Seville and Mexico midfielder Gerardo Torrado on a one-year loan, according to the player's agent.

Olaf Bonales claims Torrado has been invited to spend three days on trial with Everton.

"There is interest from Everton, who want to acquire the player for a one-year loan with an option to buy him," said Bonales.

"Everton have invited the player to go on a three-day trial to Liverpool. They are familiar with his ability but they want to meet the player prior to signing him.

"The economic offer is good for everybody, as Everton would pay 200,000 euros (138,000) for a one-year loan."

Torrado added: "I'm willing to play there. I want to prove myself and that's a good place to do it."

The 24-year-old is contracted to Seville until June 2005 but has fallen out of favour with coach Joaquin Caparros after making just 22 league appearances last season.

Torrado joined and Seville in the summer of 2001 from Mexican side UNAM and was part of Mexico's 2002 World Cup squad.
