Everton are set to seal the signing of Paraguayan international defender Antolin Alcaraz.

The 30-year-old defender is a free agent having left Wigan Athletic at the end of the season when his contract expired.

New Everton boss Roberto Martinez has already raided his former club this week to sign Arouna Kone, and now he has moved for another of his former charges in the shape of Alcaraz.

Sky Sports understands the central defender has agreed a two-year deal with the Toffees and is set to sign on at Goodison Park after a medical, which is due to take place on Tuesday.

Alcaraz and Kone could both be joined by another former team-mate as Sky Sports understands that goalkeeper Joel Robles, who was on loan at Wigan last season from Atletico Madrid, is also set for talks with Everton.
