Everton are reportedly close to the loan capture of Inter Milan striker Victor Obinna, according to widespread reports in Italy.
The 21-year-old Nigerian spent last season at Chievo and played a key role in the club's promotion to Serie A, but has now signed a new three-year at Inter - who helped finance his move to Italy from Africa in 2005.
Roma and Napoli were thought to be in the running for Obinna's services, but it would appear Everton have secured a deal for the front-man.
Italian champions Inter have high hopes for the player but feel he would benefit from more regular playing time than they can currently offer.
Toffees boss David Moyes is desperate for new recruits after a slow summer in the transfer market and is now stepping up his attempts to bring fresh faces to Goodison Park.
