Skysports.com understands Coventry are closing in on the signing of Everton striker Lukas Jutkiewicz.

The Sky Blues are believed to have initially asked about signing Jutkiewicz on loan only to see their overtures rebuffed by Everton.

However, Coventry have now come back in with a firm offer for Jutkiewicz as they look to sign the 21-year-old on a permanent basis.

Jutkiewicz, who enjoyed a loan spell at Motherwell last season, has just one year to run on his current deal and Everton are thought to be ready to sell the former Swindon man.

With David Moyes having signed Jermaine Beckford and Magaye Gueye this summer to bolster his attacking options it appears Jutkiewicz will be allowed to leave Goodison Park.

Coventry boss Aidy Boothroyd is a big fan of Jutkiewicz and is hoping to thrash out a deal for the player in the near future.
