Goodison Park outfit hope to lure Eastlands attacker.
Everton boss David Moyes wants to sign Manchester City star Craig Bellamy in a sensational swoop.
Moyes plans to take on Harry Redknapp’s Tottenham in the chase for the Welsh star who could be on the move this summer as Roberto Mancini brings in his own men.
The Goodison chief plans to sell players to raise money for Bellamy, who would cost around £7million, but would give his team a new dimension.
Bellamy has turned Everton down before and it will take a huge effort to land him this time – and the striker would also have to come within their wage budget.
Spurs also want Bellamy and Redknapp plans to bid, but will probably have to find a permanent home for Robbie Keane before making his move. He would also have to persuade supremo Daniel Levy to pay so much for a player of his age.

David Moyes would do well to snap up Craig Bellamy, the Welshman has been in excellent form over the past two seasons and even at 30 appears to be entering a prolific phase of his career. Playing out wide effectively and able to rack up goals and assists aplenty.
Everton could do with a player of his experience but whether the Toffees can beat Tottenham to the former Liverpool man’s signature considering the north London club’s ability to offer Champions League football but maybe Bellamy would be keen to cement regular first team football which presumably would be more likely at Goodison Park.
The Merseyside club may have more need for an out and out striker so perhaps Moyes is keen to use the nippy pint sized attacker in an orthodox striking role rather than out wide.
