Everton are closing in on a deal, worth up to £10m, for Manchester City's Fabian Delph.
Manager Marco Silva and director of football Marcel Brands believe Delph can provide experience and leadership in central midfield at a bargain price.
The 29-year-old has one year left on his current deal at Etihad Stadium.
The former Aston Villa midfielder was part of England's squad at the World Cup and the recent Uefa Nations League Finals.
Delph's chances of regular football at Manchester City have decreased with the arrival of £60m club record signing Rodri from Atletico Madrid.
