Prolific forward set to leave Germany this summer after rejecting latest contract offer and has attracted interest from Juventus and Valencia as well as the Premier League duoFor all the latest reports and transfer rumours, visit our dedicated section here.
Thirty-two-year-old Klose is set to leave Munich this summer after turning down their latest one-year contract offer, which had an automatic further 12-month extension if he was to make 20 appearances.
News of his imminent departure has alerted the likes of Juventus, Valencia and Tottenham but David Moyes’ Everton have now joined the race as they look to bolster their attacking options.
Everton struggled for fire-power at times last season – often having to heavily rely on the inexperienced at Premier League level Jermaine Beckford and injury-prone Victor Anichebe - so have identified Klose as the man to lead their attack next season.
The financial restrictions at Goodison Park are well documented, but the report claims they will see the free transfer of one Europe’s most decorated front-men as an attractive proposition with only wages to worry about.
Klose will demand a two-year contract from any potential suitors and will still command a high salary, but there is sure to be no shortage of admirers for the striker who has scored 14 goals at World Cups – putting him just one behind the legendary Brazilian, Ronaldo.
