Everton first-team coach Duncan Ferguson was in Spain on Sunday to watch Real Sociedad duo Antoine Griezmann and Inigo Martinez.
Both players could have been playing their final match for the Basque club at the end of a long season in which Real struggled to cope with the demands of Champions League football.
Real Sociedad's 2-1 defeat to Villarreal means they finished in seventh place in La Liga and face an early start in the qualifying rounds for the Europa League, before which several of their best players are expected to be sold.
Everton have been linked to both 23-year-old winger Griezmann and central defender Martinez, also 23, in the past few weeks.
Griezmann scored 16 goals in 31 starts in La Liga and has also attracted the interest of Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal.
Brendan Rodgers has also looked at Martinez while Manchester City, United, Athletic Bilbao and Barcelona are also said to be among his suitors.
Everton coach Ferguson was spotted both inside and outside the Anoeta stadium on Sunday as Toffees boss Roberto Martinez builds up a scouting dossier on two of his top targets.
