Everton considering offer for Wolves forward

Recent reports suggest that Everton are the latest club to be linked with a move for Wolves forward Kevin Doyle and could complete a late swoop in the next two days.

Doyle has fallen down the pecking order under Mick McCarthy recently following the improving form of Steven Fletcher.

The Republic of Ireland international has drawn reported interest from Arsenal, Liverpool and Sunderland in recent months but a move has so far failed to materialize.

Doyle hasn’t had his most prolific terms by any standards in accordance with Wolves’ disappointing season and may consider a change in scenery in effort to revive his better scoring form.

The 28 year-old has only scored twice in 16 league starts this season but has shown in the past that he is capable of notching up far greater numbers.

Everton have the 17th worst attacking form in the Premier League this campaign and will be keen to add some attacking firepower to their side as the Toffees look to get back into contention for European football.

David Moyes has become accustomed to surviving transfer windows on a meagre transfer budget, instead opting for loan deals and unattached signings.

The Scot will however need funds to complete the signing as Mick McCarthy won’t be happy to lose £6m-rated Doyle, who moved to the Molineux in 2010.

Wolves have been linked with moves for Newcastle pair Leon Best and Peter Lovenkrands, and if either Magpie should complete a move to the West Midlands, Doyle could be free to depart.
