Crystal Palace are bracing themselves for further interest in Scott Dann from Everton, as reports claim they are lining up a bid.
Dann was on the radar of the Toffees last summer but Palace managed to rebuff all interest in the player and secured him to a new improved deal.
However Everton have maintained an interest in the 29-year-old, and reports suggest they will make a fresh bid once Ronald Koeman has been installed as their new manager.
The Dutchman is set to take charge at Goodison Park after guiding Southampton to fifth in the Premier League last season, and Dann is said to be high on his list of targets.
Dann was born in Liverpool and grew up supporting the Reds, although it is thought he would be happy to play for their arch rivals if it means he can return to Merseyside.
Palace will again fight to keep hold but everything could hinge on whether Dann requests a move to the Toffees.
