Juventus midfielder Sami Khedira is expected on Merseyside by the end of the week.
Off contract in June, Khedira is a confirmed target for Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti, having played for the Italian with Real Madrid.
Juve are eager to clear Khedira off the books and have granted the veteran permission to fly to England this week, says Gazzetta dello Sport.
The Bianconeri are expected to grant Khedira a free transfer if he can settle on terms with the Toffees.
The 33 year-old is fit, but hasn’t played first team football this season.
