Everton playing the £8m long transfer game
Everton will try and snatch Southampton striker Shane Long from under the noses of city rivals Liverpool according to a report in the times.
Stoke City are also trying to sign the Republic of Ireland international who was signed by Southampton from Hull City.
Longs place is under threat following their signing of Charlie Austin and a report in the British press says that the south coast club rejected an offer of £8m from Liverpool last week.
Everton are looking for a replacement for Steven Naismith who was sold to Norwich City for £8.5m yesterday.
Would Shane Long be a good signing for Everton?
