Everton have made an approach for Zenit St Petersburg striker Pavel Pogrebnyak, according to the player's agent.
Toffees manager David Moyes is thought to be scouring the market for an attacking recruit as he looks to compensate for the long-term injuries to striking duo Aiyegbeni Yakubu and James Vaughan.
Russia international Pogrebnyak is a rumoured target with reports in Tuesday's press suggesting scouts from the Merseyside club will take a closer look at his qualities when he lines up against Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.
The 25-year-old's representative, Oleg Artemov, said in the Daily Star: "I have been approached by Everton and several other English clubs."
