Koeman had been keen to land Pelle from former club Southampton, having also worked with the Italian at Feyenoord, but the Saints forward is set for a move to China, with Shandong Luneng understood to be closing in on a deal.

The Everton boss is now ready to turn his attentions to Milik, who is expected to leave Ajax this summer after featuring prominently for Poland at Euro 2016.

The 22-year-old, a reported target for Leicester prior to the January transfer window, has been linked with a number of clubs from across Europe in recent weeks and Everton may face a battle to bring the forward to Goodison Park.

Milik is under contract with Ajax until 2019 and it will take a bid in excess of £10million, at the very least, to convince the Dutch giants to consider cashing in on one of their prized assets this summer.
