The 24-year hit-man has had a rollercoaster ride of a career to date, after making a name for himself at Watford he shunned a number of top English clubs to join Feyenoord.
However, his Dutch adventure has seen him loaned out to both Wolves and feeder club Excelsior in recent years, but his good form saw him recalled to De Kuip and a new contract was offered, but this has been rejected and he has now decided to leave.
Dutch outfit AZ Alkmaar are known to be interested, but the lure of the Premiership could be a big incentive for Connolly, who has never played in the English top-flight.
Everton are still hoping to land Canadian Radzinski, but Connolly could yet be a vastly cheaper alternative for manager Walter Smith, who has a limited budget at Goodison Park.
