Sevilla are reportedly hoping to beat Everton to the signature of Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh in January.
According to the Daily Mail, Sevilla sporting director Monchi is keen on the Moroccan and is preparing to make his move when the transfer window opens.
Everton have also been credited with interest in the Chamakh but, it has been claimed, would most likely approach Arsenal over a potential loan deal.
Chamakh has failed to live up to expectations since joining Arsenal on a free transfer in 2010, and has had to get used to a place on the bench.
The 27-year-old started the last campaign well enough but, after some fruitful early season form for Arsenal, he found the net only once in 23 games.
Chamakh is now required purely as back up for Arsenal captain Robin van Persie, and could leave the Emirates Stadium if the right offer is received.
The Gunners, meanwhile, have been linked with a New Year bid for FC Koln star Lukas Podolksi in order to reinforce Arsene Wenger's goalscoring options.
