However, getting a deal over the line, looks a lot more difficult, as Vardy is so central to Leicester’s plans.
The Foxes hierarchy are excited about the potential partnership that Vardy could form with Grealish next term, if they can sign the attacking midfielder from Aston Villa.
And, if Claude Puel does want those two working in tandem, then it will be very difficult for Everton to persuade Leicester to sell.
Although Everton are likely to have money to invest this summer, Vardy is now 31, and they will not want to overspend on a player with little re-sale value.
And if Vardy remains central to Leicester’s plan, as has been suggested, then Everton may already have to be searching for other strike targets.
