Everton boss David Moyes is prepared to include Jack Rodwell in a bid for Tottenham striker Peter Crouch.

The People says Moyes will make a dramatic late £10million move for Tottenham striker Crouch - and could offer Rodwell in a swap to land him.

The Everton boss needs a big capture after a blank summer and sees long-term target Crouch as the ideal man - as Spurs will sell to shake up their own attack.

Moyes is on red alert because Stoke are closing in on Crouch - and White Hart Lane midfielder Wilson Palacios - in a double £20m deal.

West London clubs Fulham and QPR are also keen on the beanpole England hitman, but Everton could tempt Spurs by throwing Rodwell, 20, into the mix.
