The Goodison Park outfit have been keeping tabs on a number of targets within their price range, with two possible captures already emerging.
Tranmere Rovers hard-man Clint Hill has been forwarded as one candidate for Walter Smith's side, although the Prenton Park side would probably resist any overtures for their influential defender.
The 23-year-old picked up 14 yellow cards last season, and has previously been linked with a move to Cardiff City.
Another player watched recently by the Merseysiders is Hearts' Andy Webster.
The 19-year-old has made a big impact at Tynecastle after arriving from Arbroath, and has his admirers in England.
As for Tranmere, Senegalese striker Seyni N'Diaye continues to attract attention from Scottish Premier League side Dunfermline.
