Everton slip behind in striker chase
Everton have slipped behind Leicester as favourites in the race for Wolves striker Bakary Sako according to the Birmingham Mail and the Express.
Sako is a free agent after his Wolverhampton Wanderers contract came to an end and wants to play in the Premier League.
The 27 year old scored 15 goals in the Championship last season with a further 10 assists and is wanted by Everton, Leicester and Aston Villa on a free transfer.
He said: “I have some offers from the Premier League and some from abroad, but I want to play in the Premier League.”
His agent said he is due to make a decision very soon.
Would Sako be a good signing for Everton?
