Everton manager David Moyes is weighing up a move for want-away Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner according to the Daily Mail.
The 23-year-old Denmark international is high on the Toffees' list of summer targets as the cash-strapped club look to strengthen their squad ahead of the new season.
Bendtner was left out of the Gunners squad that embarked on a pre-season tour of Asia, adding yet more weight to the rumours that the front man had fallen out of favour with manager Arsene Wenger, and as such could leave the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal value Bendtner at £11million, but so far no club has been willing to match the inflated asking price, causing interest in the player from Germany and Portugal to cool.
Everton neither have the financial clout to meet Arsenal's expectations and so will try to convince the Gunners to agree to a season-long loan deal for Bendtner in the hope that the guarantee of more regular first team football at Goodison Park will be enough to broker a deal.
The Merseysiders failed in an attempt to take the Dane on loan in the January transfer window, but will renew their interest in the hope that Arsenal's recent acquisition of Gervinho will mean the north Londoners have changed their stance on Bendtner.
