Everton are very interested in signing Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic this summer, Sky Sports News understands.
Fulham do not want to sell the 24-year-old but the player is understood to want to play in the Premier League again next season.
Everton want to add a new centre-forward to their squad and Mitrovic is high on their list of targets after the domestic transfer window opened on Thursday.
The Serbia international, who signed for an initial £22m from Newcastle last summer, scored 11 goals in 39 appearances as Fulham were relegated after just one campaign back in the top flight.
Mitrovic had been instrumental in their promotion season under Slavisa Jokanovic, after joining on loan for the second half of the 2017-18 season and firing them into the play-offs with 12 goals in 17 Championship games.
Everton want to sign him and are also understood to be in the market for a new winger, central midfielder, centre-back, right-back and backup goalkeeper for Jordan Pickford, Sky Sports News understands.
