Everton and Fulham are battling to sign Belgian international Igor De Camargo, Sky Sports can confirm.
The 29-year-old Brazilian-born striker is set to leave German club Borussia Monchengladbach, where he has slipped down the pecking order.
Now Everton and Fulham have emerged as suitors for the player – who joined Gladbach from Standard Liege in 2010.
De Camargo has 18 months left on his current deal, but the German side are now listening to offers for the player.
Talking exclusively to Sky Sports, the club’s general manager Max Eberl confirmed: “Igor de Camargo is actually discussing a transfer as he is no first-team regular at our club.
“Lately we have been receiving several enquiries from clubs around Europe, I am able to confirm there is interest from Premiership clubs in his services.”
The player’s agent Paul Stefani also revealed to Sky Sports that talks were ongoing with Everton and Fulham – but he also added there was interest from elsewhere.
“Nothing is decided,” he told Sky Sports.
“We have talked with Everton and also with Fulham, and we will talk again – but we do not know what will happen, there are other clubs too.
“We have talked with teams in Germany also, and hopefully we will know more soon.”
