Stoke forward Marko Arnautovic is on the verge of joining Everton, according to reports in Austria.
The 27-year-old has only a year left on his deal at the Britannia Stadium and is understood to have a £12.5m release clause in his contract.
New Everton manager Ronald Koeman is looking to bolster his forward options and Arnautovic, who has failed to agree a new deal at Stoke, could be his first major signing since moving to Goodison Park from Southampton.
Arnautovic’s departure could pave the way for a renewed Stoke bid for West Brom forward Saido Berahino having seen a £20m bid last week fail to tempt the Baggies.
Stoke have already signed Egypt winger Ramadan Sobhi and on Monday confirmed Joe Allen’s arrival in a £13m deal from Liverpool.
