Premier League side Everton have gone into the transfer market and made a £5 million bid for Tottenham centre-back Federico Fazio, according to Daily Mail.
Spurs are looking to offload the defender after just one year at White Hart Lane where he has found it tough, making only 14 league appearances for the club.
West Brom interest
Mirror reports Fazio himself is open to move elsewhere with West Brom seeming a possible destination but the Argentine failed to agree personal terms having passed a medical with The Baggies.

But manager Tony Pulis still hasn’t ruled out a move yet before the transfer window closes.
Meanwhile with Everton manager outright maintaining his stance of keeping John Stones at Goodison Park despite the interest of Chelsea, Tuesday saw a dramatic turn of events.
Stones handed in a transfer request earlier this week to force through a move to the capital, as per Goal.com.
The Merseyside club has already rejected three bids of £20, £26 and £30 million but Jose Mourinho is determined to get the deal done as he views Stones as the ideal successor to John Terry at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea are readying a fourth bid in the coming days and are hopeful of securing the signing of the England Under-21 youngster.
Everton are trying to recoup as much money from The Blues as Stones’ former club Barnsley is entitled to have a £4.5 million share in the sale.
With Chelsea move now looking imminent for Stones, Fazio could be the one replacing him and he would be joined by compatriot Ramiro Funes Mori from River Plate who is set to sign for The Toffees for £6 million.
