The Toffees are set to venture into the transfer market once again this winter, with Roberto Martinez keen to mould his inherited squad into his desired image.
After addressing central midfield concerns prior to the last deadline, the Spaniard is ready to boost his options in the final third.
Martinez still has excellent connections in his homeland, and is believed to have been recommended Guardado.
The Mexican wide-man is highly-rated in La Liga, but is rumoured to be available for a move at the turn of the year.
With Valencia still gripped by financial uncertainty, the 27-year-old is believed to be available for just £6m.
This has alerted Martinez, who is reportedly willing to match Los Che’s asking price.
Guardado has earned the nickname ‘the little prince’ during his time in Spain thanks to his impressive displays.
The Central American moved to the country from his home nation in 2007.
He impressed with Deportivo La Coruna, but was unable to save them from relegation before leaving last year to join Valencia.
