Everton and Spurs eye World Cup goal machine

David Moyes has launched an audacious bid to bring Germany striker Miroslav Klose to Everton.
Moyes is desperate to sign a proven scorer and is targeting Klose, who will be a free agent this summer when his Bayern Munich contract expires at the end of this month.
Everton have already pocketed £2.5million from James Vaughan's sale to Norwich and Moyes hopes to put together a competitive two-year contract offer for Klose.
The player is 32, but is one of world football's deadliest marksmen. His 14 goals for Germany in World Cup finals matches is only one behind the record, held by Brazil's Ronaldo. He won the Golden Boot after scoring five times in the 2006 tournament.
The Toffees face stiff competition from Juventus and Valencia for his signature, while Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is also aware of Klose's situation.
Moyes may also revive his interest in Demba Ba, having been keen on the striker before he joined West Ham in January.
