David Moyes is considering making a move for out-of-contract former Wigan striker Hugo Rodallega.
The Everton boss wrapped up a deal for ex-Rangers striker Steven Naismith on Tuesday.

Everton are keen on signing Oscar Cardozo after Benfica put a £16m price tag on the striker. Fenerbahce, Galatasaray, PSG and an unnamed Premier League side are also tracking the Paraguayan, 29.
It seems finally Everton are going to have a strike force to be reckoned with. After adding the prolific Nikica Jelavic to the squad in January, Moyes has moved to bring in his former Rangers striker partner Steven Naismith on a free transfer.
And if rumours are to be believed, the club are chasing free agent Hugo Rodallega of Wigan and Benfica’s Oscar Cardozo. If Moyes can work his magic on one or both, then the Toffees will be in serious business next year.
It’s hasn’t been uncommon in recent seasons to see midfielders Tim Cahill or Maroune Fellaini deployed up front as auxiliary strikers. Blue-blooded Liverpudlians will argue that Moyes simply invented Vicente del Bosque’s now famed strikerless/”fake no. 9″ system but the truth is, Everton simply lacked the striking personnel. That looks set to change with Moyes clearly having identified his front line as in the most need of reinforcement this summer.
Holding on to Fellaini and Leighton Baines will be a big ask but if owner Bill Kenwright can resist big-money offers for the pair and engineer a permanent deal for Tottenham’s Steven Pienaar, the Toffees could be the surprise package in next season’s Premier League.
