Everton are closing in on a deal for veteran Cameroon striker Samuel Eto'o. Press Association Sport understands the Toffees are in advanced talks with the 33-year-old, who became a free agent at the end of last season after he was released by Chelsea.

Everton held detailed negotiations with the former Barcelona and Inter Milan forward last week but after those initial discussions the chances of a move to Goodison Park appeared to cool.

However, talks have re-started over a potential two-year deal as manager Roberto Martinez looks to add more firepower to his side with Arouna Kone, back-up to main striker Romelu Lukaku, still to return from a knee injury sustained in October.
