Everton want to sign Wolves defender Conor Coady this summer.
The 29-year-old, who has been at the Midlands club for seven years, is a target for Everton boss Frank Lampard as he looks to add the experienced defender to his ranks.
It’s thought Wolves would want to keep the player at Molineux, but are sympathetic to the fact Coady is keen to force his way into the England squad ahead of the World Cup.

Following the arrival of Nathan Collins from Stoke in a £20.5m deal, it is anticipated that Coady’s minutes would be reduced this season.
There is an expectation at Wolves that they will be able to keep prized asset Ruben Neves, despite the midfielder being lined up as a Frenkie de Jong alternative by Manchester United.
Wolves are also facing a battle to keep hold of Morgan Gibbs-White, with Nottingham Forest expected to come in with an improved third offer after seeing their initial two bids rejected – the latest of which was close to £25m.
Bruno Lage’s side have no intention of selling the 22-year-old, who spent last season on loan at Sheffield United.
