Everton FC could turn their attentions towards French international Loic Remy if their pursuit of Romelu Lukaku fails, according to Clubcall.
Remy has been one of the few shining lights of Newcastle’s season after being loaned from QPR.
And the website believes the Blues are ready to turn their attentions to the 27-year-old, who is rated at £10m.
Even more striking options are being looked at according to the Daily Star, with Hannover’s Didier Ya Konan the latest to be linked.
The 29-year-old is out of contract this summer and weighing up Hannover’s offer of a new three-year deal.
But the newspaper believes the Toffees want to swoop in and sign him on a free transfer.
Any hopes of signing Wilfried Bony have taken a dive, however, with the Express reporting Swansea will demand an “astronomical” fee for the striker.
The Ivory Coast striker has impressed in his debut Premier League season, which has seen him linked with the Blues.
But the 25-year-old would command a big fee according to Swansea boss Garry Monk.
And finally, Everton scouts watched Anderlecht’s defensive midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate this past weekend according to Het Laatste Nieuws in Belgium.
The 24-year-old Senegal international is also reportedly being eyed by both West Ham and West Brom.
