The future of Everton midfielder Tim Cahill remains up in the air, with clubs in Saudi Arabia and China thought to be the latest to target the Australia international.
Reports suggest Al Hilal have made a multi-million pound offer to lure the midfielder to the Middle East, while Al Nasr are another Saudi side to have previously been linked.
It is understood Chinese outfit Guizho Renhe have also made an official approach to the 32-year-old.
Last week Cahill reportedly turned down turned down a 16million dollar (£10.3million) three-year deal from an unnamed club in Saudi Arabia.
The midfielder, who played a starring role in Australia's 1-1 draw in their World Cup qualifier against group leaders Japan on Monday, has made no secret of his desire to one day play in the Middle East.
He has two years remaining on his contract at Goodison Park and is happy at the club he joined in 2004 but it is believed he would consider a move overseas.
Meanwhile, long-serving Everton defender Tony Hibbert will have a testimonial against AEK Athens at Goodison Park on August 8th.
The 31-year-old, a graduate of the club's academy, has made 309 appearances since his Toffees debut in 2001.
