Everton are trailing Croatia striker Mario Mandzukic – and could land him for a bargain £7million.
The Croatia hitman, one of the stars of Euro 2012 so far with his three goals in two games, could be paired with team mate Nikica Jelavic at Goodison Park.
Mandzukic is on the radar of other Premier League sides too, because he is available at a “fair” price from his German club, Wolfsburg.
The 26-year-old was signed by Wolfsburg’s then-coach Steve McClaren – a friend of Everton boss David Moyes’ No2 Steve Round – for £6million and has two years left on his contract.

Given the form shown by Croatian international Nikica Jelavic since his move to Goodison Park from Rangers it’s not a complete surprise that David Moyes appears to have set his sights on Mario Mandzukic, who has worked well alongside the Toffees forward during Euro 2012.
The lanky forward has netted three goals in two games and is perhaps a player who could work well in the English top tier. The powerfully built forward has the physical stature to suit the Premier League and may well be keen on a move to join Jelavic at Goodison Park having seen his Wolfsburg side struggle for form over the course of the two seasons he has been at the Bundesliga side.
Mandzukic has scored 20 goals in 60 matches in Germany but was far more prolific at Dinamo Zagreb and Moyes may feel he is cost effective attacking option to play alongside Jelavic next term.
