Everton are chasing Manchester United striker Mame Biram Diouf.

The People says the Goodison chief sent number two Steve Round in a delegation to watch the Senegalese hit man score twice for the reserves against Liverpool last week.

Moyes is keen on Diouf and is also aware that United have a long-term interest in Jack Rodwell who has hit form this season and may be a big-money target next month.

United were hot on Rodwell a year ago and Sir Alex Ferguson may have a go for him as he faces up to problems in his midfield.
