Everton are still hoping to sign one more striker before the end of the summer transfer window, with manager Roberto Martinez set to choose from one of three main targets upfront.

The Toffees have already spent big on bringing in Romelu Lukaku from Chelsea this summer, with the young Belgian giving the Toffees an exciting-looking attack as they look to build on their impressive fifth-place finish in the Premier League last season.

Eto’o scored 12 goals during a one-year stay at Stamford Bridge last term, and could still have one more season in him at the top level, looking a potentially smart piece of business due to his availability on a free.
