Everton manager David Moyes has confirmed he is hoping to make a double swoop on Valencia.
The Toffees boss is determined to land Mohamed Sissoko and Emiliano Moretti to boost his squad ahead of the UEFA Champions League qualifiers.
"I can confirm we are trying to bring them both to Everton," Moyes told Everton's official website.
"I don't want to say much more than that but I am hoping to conclude both deals quickly."
Sissoko, who was formerly with Auxerre, represented Mali in the Olympic Games and is a 20-year-old forward with plenty of potential.
Defender Moretti also represented his country in Athens last year with the Italian left back signing a five-year contract when joining Valencia in 2004.
However, things have not really worked out for him at La Mestalla and a move could be on the cards.
If Moyes can wrap up the transfers, it should be good business for the Merseysiders who are looking for more experience and options within their squad.
