Everton are closing on two of their summer transfer targets - Davy Klaassen and Sandro Ramirez - Sky sources understand.
Ronald Koeman has been reportedly linked with a host of players, but Ajax captain Klaassen and Malaga striker Ramirez could be the first arrivals at Goodison Park.
Sky Sports News HQ understands Everton are in advanced talks with Ajax for 24-year-old Klaassen, who has spent his entire professional career with the Dutch side, but a fee is yet to be agreed.
Klaassen has been a regular scorer for Ajax, hitting the target 27 times in the last two seasons, and his arrival could make Ross Barkley's departure more of a likelihood.
Koeman has previously stated he was looking for a replacement for the England midfielder, who has one year left on his contract and has so far failed to agree a new deal.
Ramirez is one of Spain's most promising young players, having scored 14 goals in La Liga last season for Malaga - he had joined the club last summer from Barcelona.
His signing could come at a relative bargain at £5m because of a release clause in his contract with the Spanish side.
