Ghana International Andre Ayew is set to return to the English Premier League after leaving Qatari side Al Sadd.
The forward is wanted by Everton, who are looking to seal a free transfer for the player.
According to the Daily Mail, the 33-year-old will fly to England in the next 24 hours after leaving Al Sadd with a “£2.5million golden handshake”.
The Black Stars captain terminated the contract last week, but didn’t give a reason for his mid-season departure.
The publication adds that Ayew, who is a brother of Crystal Palace player Jordan, held preliminary conversations with Toffees chiefs, including sporting director Kevin Thelwell, over a potential move to Goodison Park.
The proposed deal would run until the end of the season.
However, there are no guarantees that the former Swansea and West Ham star will – as expected – join Everton with rival top-flight clubs having registered an interest.
He will be eligible for registration outside the transfer window because he is a free agent.
