Skysports.com can reveal that Everton are in talks to sign Liverpool defender Djimi Traore.
Everton boss David Moyes is keen to bolster his squad fearing it is not strong enough to compete in The Premiership.
Moyes is a big fan of Traore and is ready to bring the Frenchman to Goodison Park in a shock switch.
Traore's future at Anfield is uncertain as he has not been available for Rafa Bentiez because of injury and they could decide to cash-in on him.
The player's agent Monte-Carlo based Willie McKay confirmed Everton had made an offer for Traore and that the player was waiting to see if Liverpool were prepared to let him go.
"I know Bill Kenwright has contacted Rick Parry about Djimi and an offer has been made," McKay told skysports.com
"Djimi wants to be playing regularly, but the problem is that Mr Benitez has not seen him play because he is injured.
"The transfer deadline is coming up at the end of the month and Djimi wants Liverpool to decide whether or not they want to keep him.
"David Moyes is big admirer of Djimi.
"There have been a lot of clubs phoning me about Djimi to find out about his situation."
