The striker has said that he wants to play in the Premier League despite interest for Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala.
Everton have joined Newcastle in the race to sign St Etienne striker Pierre-Emerick-Aubameyang, the Daily Mirror reports.
The striker recently expressed an interest in playing in the Premier League and called Newcastle a “good club”, increasing speculation that he maybe on his way to St James’s Park this summer.
However, that doesn’t appear to have put off Everton, with Roberto Martinez set to put in his own £15 million bid for the Gabon star.
Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala are also interested in sign Aubameyang but with the strikers preference for the Premier League, a move to Russia is unlikely at this stage.
Martinez wants to make one or two tweaks to the squad he inherited from David Moyes, especially up-front, with the Toffees being linked with Wigan Athletics’ Aruna Kone and Vitesse Arnhem’s Wilfried Bony.
Martinez may have plenty of money to spend soon, with Leighton Baines that subject of interest from Manchester United and Maurone Fellaini close to a move to Arsenal.
While Martinez doesn’t want to lose either player, the money they would generate would help Martinez make his own signings this summer.
