Toffees manager Ronald Koeman is desperate for a forward to replace Romelu Lukaku and has Deeney, 29, in his sights.

Real Sociedad’s Willian Jose is also on the Dutchman’s radar, while scouts have been impressed by Cardiff’s Kenneth Zohore.

But Deeney has Prem experience and a proven track record of leading the Hornets attack.

West Brom chief Tony Pulis has made Deeney a main target this week if a deal can be struck with club and player.

Pulis is also ready to make a late move for Bournemouth defender Marc Wilson.

Silva wants to bolster his Vicarage Road attack with Leicester striker Islam Slimani, which would add to competition for Deeney.

🚨 EXCLUSIVE OFFER: Premier League Top Goalscorer 🚨

ROMELU LUKAKU has come in to 2/1 to finish as the Premier League top scorer.

The Belgian scored twice against West Ham on Sunday to put an immediate market down in the Golden Boot race.

Harry Kane, who has NEVER scored a goal in August, is 2/1.

And there is value to be had in Alexandre Lacazette.

He is 8/1 even after scoring on his debut against Leicester last week.

Sun Bets have a blinding special offer for top scorer.

If you bet £25 on any player to top the table at the end of the season, they’ll give a £5 free bet for every game he scores in until October.

The offer is valid until midnight August 27 and is open to ALL customers.


Arsenal defender Kieran Gibbs is also set for talks with Watford over a move.

The England left-back needs to agree personal terms before his switch.

But Silva’s side have agreed a deal for Gibbs, 27, who is down the pecking order at the Emirates.

He wants a move now rather than running his contract down until the end of the season and going for free.
