Everton could be set to do business with former boss David Moyes as they look to bring in Iceland striker Alfred Finnbogason, that’s according to reports today.
Finnbogason is said to be have made available by Moyes after scoring just two goals in 25 appearance since a £6m move from Heerenveen last summer.
The striker has struggled in La Liga with Real Sociedad, and Moyes is said to be keen to see the Iceland international gain some experience elsewhere.
Moyes’ close links to Everton could give the Toffees an advantage in the chase for the striker, with newly promoted Norwich City also said to be interested in the 26-year-old.
Finnbogason had an exceptional goalscoring record in Holland, notching 59 goals in 70 appearances for Heerenveen in a two year spell. He has also had spells in Sweden and Belgium, as well as in his homeland.
He’s been capped 25 times for Iceland, scoring five goals.

Everton could be set to miss out on Crystal Palace defender Scott Dann, however, with The Guardian reporting that the centre-back remains a key member of Alan Pardew’s squad.
Dann had been linked with a move to Goodison Park after the exit of Sylvain Distin this summer, but Palace are said to be determined to turn away all offers for the 28-year-old.
Scouser and Liverpool fan Dann has made 48 appearances for Palace since a £2.6m move from Blackburn last year.
He started his career at Walsall before working his way up the leagues.
And finally, Wolves winger Bakary Sako could be on his way to Goodison Park to fill the void left by Christian Atsu.
Atsu has joined Bournemouth on loan from Chelsea after struggling at Goodison Park last year, and with Sako available on a free transfer this summer, Roberto Martinez could be tempted to take a gamble on the 27-year-old.
Leicester City, West Brom and Aston Villa will reportedly provide competition for the player who scored 15 goals for Wolves in the Championship last term.
