Everton are finalising a deal for Wigan Athletic striker Arouna Kone.

The Daily Mail says Kone has undergone a medical at Everton today with the Toffees set to beat Newcastle United to the £5million striker.

New Everton boss Roberto Martinez looks to have sealed a reunion with the 29-year-old, who he managed when he was in charge at the DW Stadium.

Kone turned down a £6million move to Tyneside earlier in the week.
