Everton have joined the race to sign Mario Gotze this summer. The German international, who scored the winning goal at the World Cup four years ago, has struggled for his best form since with injuries also an issue.
It has seen him linked with a move away from Borussia Dortmund this summer.
It is reported by Sky Sports that Everton are joined by Arsenal, West Ham, Valencia and Marseille in the race to sign the player.
Dortmund want to recoup most of the £22 million it cost to bring Gotzer back to Signal Iduna Park last summer.
Mo to go?
Mo Besic could be on his way out of the club this summer. The Bosnian international spent the second half of last season on loan at Middlesbrough and helped the Teessiders into the Championship play-offs.
Now, the Northern Echo is reporting that Besic could consider a permanent switch to the Riverside if he is told he has no future at Goodison Park.
The 25-year-old fell down the pecking order at Everton after a string of injury trouble on Merseyside.
Everton are one of a number of clubs in the hunt for Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Sean Clare. According to TEAMtalk, the Merseyside team join the likes of Leeds and Wolves in the hunt for the player. Aston Villa have been the frontrunners for his signature, but are no longer in the running for the player.
Clare has refused a new deal at Hillsborough, where he impressed in the second half of last season.
Everton are now hopeful of bringing the 21-year-old to Goodison Park for a minimal compensation fee.
