Report: Everton offered ex-Spurs frontman Dimitar Berbatov; considering making a bid

Everton have been offered the chance to sign former Tottenham Hotspur striker Dimitar Berbatov.

Everton have been offered the chance to sign Dimitar Berbatov from Monaco, according to a report in the Daily Mail.

Berbatov is thought to be keen on a move back to the Premier League and his agents feel that Goodison Park could be a destination he thrives at.

At the moment Everton are yet to bid, but they are said to be mulling over the possibility of making an offer for the 33-year-old striker.

Berbatov has grown tired of playing in Ligue 1 and wants to play in a league where he has impressed before.

The Bulgarian international was a stellar performer for both Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United during his previous spell in England and will be hoping to show that he retains that sort of ability, despite his ageing years.

His record in France - where he has scored seven goals in 21 matches this season - suggests that he would still have something to offer, but his worth has to be weighed against his wage demands.

Berbatov is reportedly asking for £70,000-a-week and that has already proved to be a stumbling block for Queens Park Rangers, who were previously interested.

If Berbatov were to sign for Everton, he would likely be utilised as back-up - but their need for a striker is obvious.

With Samuel Eto'o leaving for Sampdoria earlier in the week, Roberto Martinez's side are now short on options up front and Berbatov could represent a decent short-term solution to a potential problem.
