Dieumerci Mbokani is reportedly set for a January move to Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim although the striker has not ruled out a move to Everton.
The German club are currently leading the chase for the Congo international despite firm interest in the player from Everton.
Toffees boss David Moyes is set to offload striker Yakubu to Championship side Leicester, allowing him to move for the Monaco forward.
Moyes is aware that a new striker would help take the weight of goals off of Tim Cahill with Everton scoring just 10 goals in nine home games so far this season.
Although the agent of Mbokani recently intimated that his client will not be moving to the Premier League, the 25-year-old has stated otherwise.
Mbokani, who has only found the net on one occasion this season, told skysports.com: "I am relaxed about everything and waiting to see what will happen.
"I want to play in a team who want me and there are clubs out there who are interested in me.
"Everton are an attractive team and the Premier League is a very good league, if not, the best league in the world, but let's wait and see what happens."
