Everton are considering deals for five-time Champions League winner Isco and former Swansea forward Andre Ayew.
The pair are both available as free agents, and can be signed after the January transfer, a month where Everton made no signings.
The Toffees are in desperate need of a new forward after failing to replace Anthony Gordon in January.
In fact, the Merseyside outfit were the only top-flight club that didn’t make a single signing last month.
Their shocking winter window led fans to protest outside of Everton’s training ground as they vented their fury towards the board at Finch Farm.
Everton are in real danger of being relegated for the first time since 1951 as they sit 19th in the table having scored just 15 goals in 20 games.
The Premier League strugglers missed out on Arnaut Danjuma after Tottenham hijacked the move, before being knocked back in their efforts to sign Olivier Giroud, Michy Batshuayi and Ismailsa Sarr on deadline day.
The Times now report that Isco is a target, having left Real Madrid in the summer, but only lasting six months at Sevilla before becoming a free agent.
The Spain international looked set to join Bundesliga side Union Berlin on deadline day, with it claimed he’d even signed contracts and passed his medical before the deal broke down.
It’s also claimed that Everton want ex-West Ham and Swansea star Ayew, who is a free agent after departing Qatari side Al Sadd.
It’s understood that the 33-year-old, who scored for Ghana at the World Cup against Portugal in November, is due to arrive in England shortly.
Everton are willing to offer Ayew a deal until the end of the season with the club holding preliminary talks with the former Marseille man.
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano says that Ayew is on his way to London to negotiate with two Premier League teams – one of which is Everton.
Ayew could seal a swift return back to Britain having only departed Swansea at the end of the 2020/21 season where he scored 47 goals in 141 appearances in all competitions.
Everton haven’t won in the league since beating Crystal Palace 3-0 in October.
Their torrid run of form after the World Cup break saw Frank Lampard being relieved of his duties, with Sean Dyche replacing him in the dugout.
Table-toppers Arsenal are first up for Dyche as Everton host Mikel Arteta’s rampant side at Goodison Park on Saturday, live on talkSPORT.
He then takes his team to rivals Liverpool at Anfield a week later – a ground they have won just once at since 1999.
