Everton are thought to have matched Swansea's £4million offer for Muhamed Besic, according to the Daily Mail.

Besic attracted attention during this summer's World Cup, where he featured in all three group games for Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Swansea lodged a bid for the 21-year-old early, in order to try and push through a transfer ahead of their rivals, with Everton and West Ham also considering whether to make a move for the player.

Counter offer

However, Everton have now submitted an offer of their own – thought to be £2.5 million up-front, plus another £1.5 million in add ons, while West Ham are still monitoring the situation.

Besic currently plays for Ferencvaros, in the Hungarian top division, but could be ready to make the step-up to one of Europe's top leagues, after showing his talent at the World Cup, with Roberto Martinez reportedly picking him out as the player he would most like to see in his Everton side next season.

European adventure

Everton will be featuring in the Europa League next term, and therefore need to bolster the squad should they wish to challenge on all fronts. A deal to bring in Gareth Barry, who impressed at Goodison Park last season, has already been completed, while the club are also on the look out for a top-class striker, following Romelu Lukaku's return to Chelsea.
