Everton are lining up a move for Sevilla's Colombian hit man Carlos Bacca, according to the Daily Mirror.

The 27-year-old only joined the Spanish side in the summer from Club Brugge, but his impressive tally of 17 goals this term - including a brace against Real Madrid - has made him one of the most sought after forwards in Europe, with Everton believed to be heading the queue of clubs chasing his services.

However, The Toffees will have to fork out significantly more than the £5million Sevilla paid for the bustling striker last summer. It is believed, though, that they would be willing to match the £9million buy-out clause written into the Colombian international's contract.

Bacca is seen as the ideal replacement for Everton's current goalscoring hero Romelu Lukaku, who is likely to return to parent club Chelsea at the end of the season. He shares the  attributes of strength and aerial ability with Lukaku, as well as a clinical eye for goal and ability with the ball at his feet.

Everton will be hoping to tie up a deal as soon as possible, as Bacca is being touted as a potential star of the World Cup this summer (in the absence of his compatriot Radamel Falcao) and is likely to attract more suitors.
