Swansea knocked back the Toffees’ £10m offer for their skipper, thwarting Ronald Koeman’s plans to lure in the Welsh enforcer.
And reports claim that Everton are now looking elsewhere, with Dann a target.
The 6ft. 5” centre-back shone for the Eagles last term, with his commanding displays having prompted calls for him to be drafted into the England set-up.
Everton were interested in the Liverpool-born ace 12 months ago, but he chose to stay in south London.
A potential stumbling block could be Dann’s potential £15m price-tag – a hefty fee for a 29-year-old.
