Roberto Martinez is closing in on a £6million move to make Aiden McGeady his top summer signing as Everton manager according to the Mail
Everton’s former Wigan boss is on the verge of a transfer breakthrough as he prepares to take £5million striker Arouna Kone and out-of-contract centre-back Antolin Alcaraz from his old club.
Mindful of the need to maintain the progress made under David Moyes, Martinez aims to add at least two more new faces to his squad, with McGeady set to be the costliest of all.
Desperately disappointed to miss out on the Spartak Moscow and former Celtic winger in January, after a £5million bid was turned down, he has kept tabs on a player he rates highly and is confident of landing him at the second attempt.
His other signing will be a keeper, with Atletico Madrid’s Joel Robles a possible target after impressing on loan at Wigan last season.
