Everton are lining up a summer move for Wigan Athletic striker Hugo Rodallega, according to The Mirror.

The Blues' current forwards have struggled to find the net on a regular basis this season, while Louis Saha has been dogged by injury problems, and boss David Moyes sees the 25-year-old as the solution to the club's goalscoring woes.

Saha is the only player to reach double figures this term but has struggled for fitness throughout his career, while team-mates James Vaughan and Yakubu Aiyegbeni are out on loan and look surplus to requirements.

Colombian international Rodallega has just one year left on his contract at the DW Stadium and is thought to be available for around £10 million.

The move will depend on the Toffees' budget this summer and on Wigan’s Premier League status.

The former Necaxa man is set to leave whatever league the Latics are in, but relegation could see a drop in the £10m price tag.

Fellow attacker Charles N’Zogbia also looks set to leave Roberto Martinez’s side as the club look to gain financial security.

The Lancashire outfit are fighting to secure their Premier League status for a seventh consecutive season while Everton are undefeated in seven and are on the tail of rivals Liverpool, who sit sixth.
