Everton have revealed that they are 'close' to landing Mikael Forssell.
The highly-rated Finn missed most of last season through injury, after beginning the campaign on loan to Birmingham City from Chelsea - as he did the year before.
Despite his injury lay-off demand has not been hard to come by, as Birmingham, Tottenham, Portsmouth and a number of German sides were also keen on setting up a deal.
Everton say they are closing in on a deal to sign Chelsea's Finnish international striker Mikael Forssell.
Blues chief executive Keith Wyness revealed that the clubs have held talks about the 24-year-old player, who it is believed would cost around £4m.
"We haven't reached agreement yet, but we are not far apart now," he told the club's website.
Competition is mounting in Scott Parker and Mikael Forssell as Everton try - seemingly in vain - to seal a quick deal for the Chelsea pair.
The Toffees made their double move late last month as they looked to beat a host of clubs to the duo.
However, various complications - including interest from other clubs - is threatening both deals.
