Everton will make fresh moves to sign Dynamo Kiev forward Andriy Yarmolenko this summer and have also entered the race to sign Santos star Lucas Lima, sources have told ESPN.

New Everton shareholder Farhad Moshiri has vowed to do all he can to bring the club back towards the top of the Premier League and has outlined an ambitious programme of investment that will include the capture of some marquee signings this summer.

Ukraine international Yarmolenko is a long-time target for Everton boss Roberto Martinez and this latest move confirms Moshiri's eagerness to compete for some of the game's top talent, with Barcelona, Liverpool and Arsenal also linked with a move for the 26-year-old forward over recent months.
