Goodison Park side chase White Hart Lane star Mousa Dembele.
Everton are lining up a January move for Tottenham midfielder Mousa Dembele according to the Sunday Mirror.
The 27 year old former Fulham man has started just one Premier League fixture this term and could be interested in a fresh challenge if he feels he is not a crucial part of Mauricio Pocettino’s plans.
Roberto Martinez is said to have made enquiries about Dembele’s availability over the summer and will make a fresh move in January with Tottenham sure to demand far less than the £15m they paid for the Belgian two years ago.
Dembele combines the qualities of a strong tackling midfield presence whilst also being able to push the play forwards and is a real threat in the final third.
The presence of national team colleagues Romelu Lukaku and Kevin Mirallas at Everton may be a motivating factor when considering a move to the Merseyside outfit.
