Everton boss David Moyes is considering making a move for former Wigan forward Hugo Rodallega according to The Daily Mail.
The cash-strapped Merseysiders are eager to push on by bolstering their squad this summer, but do not have an abundance of money to spend due to financial constraints.
The Colombia international’s contract with the Latics has expired, with the South American leaving the DW Stadium and now available on a free transfer.
Meanwhile, Toffees legend Trevor Steven ha stated that the side need to get off to a good start next season, and the fact that January signing Nikica Jelavic has settled in at Goodison Park should aid this.
“Every team changes their squad in some shape or fashion, whether players are coming out of contract, whether they choose to leave, or whether management wishes that they move on to get someone else in, because you need to freshen it,” he told the club’s official website.
“But the beauty of this season was being able to go into the transfer market last January and spend a considerable amount of money on Jelavic, which was a bargain – he was probably a good 40 per discount on what he might have been had the situation at Rangers not been what it was. So that was an intelligent purchase,” he admitted.
