Everton Want to Sign Burnley hot shot Jay Rodriguez

DAVID Moyes wants to land Burnley striker Jay Rodriguez in a deal that could cost Everton around £8million.

Rodriguez, 22, has one year left on his deal and is also attracting interest from Fulham and newly promoted Southampton.

But Toffees boss Moyes is keen to snap up the 21-goal hitman to play alongside Nikica Jelavic.

Everton will be reluctant to pay the Clarets’ asking price but the fee is being forced up by the rising interest in the youngster.

Saints had a £5.5m bid KO’d in January and Newcastle also made an enquiry for the England Under-21 striker.

Moyes could raise the money by selling Three Lions midfielder Jack Rodwell to Chelsea.
