Arsenal and Spurs have been joined by Aston Villa in the race to sign Steven Pienaar.
The South African skipper had a slow start to the World Cup with a fairly average opening display against Mexico, but Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is a known admirer of the 28-year-old.
Everton midfielder Pienaar has impressed in the Premier League since moving from Borussia Dortmund, originally on loan, culminating in him winning the Goodison Park player of the year award for his efforts last season.
Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has also taken a shine to Pienaar, with the media linking the White Hart Lane club with a possible summer move for the player last month.
Now, the Daily Mirror reports that Villa have joined Tottenham and the Gunners in the race for the playmaker. In repost, David Moyes is said to have placed a £15 million price tag on Pienaar's head.
The former Ajax star has one year left on his contract in Merseyside, leaving the Toffees with a conundrum as they struggle to negotiate a new deal with the player.
With the two north London clubs able to offer Champions League football, they would have to be considered favourites if a bidding war begins, but Everton will do their best to fend off interest in one of their prized assets.
