Juventus' Mario Mandzukic (L) in action against Inter Milan's Miranda (R)

According to a report from Calcio Mercato, Everton are interested in bringing Juventus forward Mario Mandzukic to Goodison Park this summer.

The Croatia international struggled to make a significant impact in Italy last season and his game-time will be further reduced following the big-money arrival of Gonzalo Higuain, and with his future in doubt Everton manager Ronald Koeman is allegedly plotting his move.

In other news, the Daily Mail claims Everton are keeping a close eye on the contract situation of Manchester City teenager Tosin Adarabioyo.

The 18-year-old centre-back has shone for the Blues during pre-season and he is highly rated at the Etihad Stadium. But with less than 12 months remaining on his current contract he could be set to leave for free next summer.

If Everton ultimately bring him to Merseyside it would be a great piece of business for the long-term future of the side.
