Serhou Guirassy, a hitman for Rennes, is what Everton manager Frank Lampard wants to give his team more offensive firepower.
Since the powerful forward, 26, shone against his Chelsea team in the Champions League two years ago, Lampard has kept tabs on him.
Guirassy is available for about £15 million, so Everton might be able to afford him.
The Toffees want to reach an agreement that fits within their financial constraints.
If Guirassy succeeds and they remain in business, they could buy him or take him on loan with a guaranteed purchase.
After lining up a replacement for Guirassy, who scored ten goals last season, Rennes are willing to sell.
Ludovic Ajorque, a striker for Strasbourg, has drawn interest from Everton as well. His approach seems ideal for the Premier League.
However, Wolves are taking their pursuit of the 6′ 6″ Ajorque more seriously.
Wolves made a low opening bid plus add-ons worth around £10 million, but they will need to DOUBLE that amount.
Ajorque, 28, who is valued at about £18 million, shone against Liverpool in a friendly last weekend.

However, Wolves want him for a lower price to replace Raul Jimenez.
Wolves are under more pressure to sign a forward as a result of his injury.
Nevertheless, Strаsbourg hopes to hold аn аuction.
