Skysports.com understands that Everton are interested in signing Nicklas Bendtner on loan from Arsenal.
The Toffees are looking to strengthen their squad this summer as they look to try and improve on last season's seventh-placed finish in the Premier League.
A lack of firepower was evident as David Moyes' men relied heavily on goals from midfield, and bringing in a new striker is thought to be a priority.
Arsenal forward Bendtner is believed to have been identified as a possible target, with Everton understood to be keen on striking a loan deal.
The Denmark international has made no secret of his desire to leave the Emirates Stadium before the transfer window closes after becoming frustrated with a lack of regular opportunities last term.
Arsene Wenger left Bendtner out of Arsenal's squad for their pre-season tour of Asia and confirmed he would be allowed to depart after seven years at the club.
Bendtner has been heavily linked with a move to Germany and it is unlikely that the Gunners would be prepared to send him out on loan.
