Everton manager David Moyes is set to sign a striker this window, but is still deciding which of two he hopes to bring to Goodison Park.

A bid has been lodged with Rangers for around £6m for their Croatian forward Nikica Jelavic, who has scored a quite credible 30 goals in 45 appearances for the Ibrox side.

Press Association Sport also state that Everton have sounded out Wolverhampton Wanderers about taking their Republic of Ireland striker Kevin Doyle to Merseyside.

Doyle has played impressively for Wolves since signing for around £6.5m in the summer of 2009, but has recently lost his place in the team to Steven Fletcher up front.

Fletcher has scored nine Premier League goals in 16 appearances so far this season, and understandably that makes him difficult to drop.

Doyle has been less prolific than Jelavic has in the last couple of years, notching sixteen goals in 79 appearances for Wolves, but his tireless work ethic and link play make him an asset up front.

However, the Irishman also turns 29 this season, and is a less long term investment prospect than Jelavic.

The difficulty with signing Jelavic though is that he has no Premier League experience, and being a prolific goalscorer in the Scottish Premier League unfortunately doesn’t make a surefire success in the English top flight.

David Moyes knows he can’t get this decision wrong.

Everton don’t have the transfer funds to fix any error.
