Everton and Portsmouth are battling to keep want-away Bolton Wanderers striker El Hadji Diouf in the Premiership next season.

The Senegal international has declared he's quitting the Reebok in the summer and that has sparked the interest of Atletico Madrid, Roma and Sevilla, along with Premiership rivals Everton and Pompey.

Diouf said: "Whether Bolton remain in the league or not, it is my last year. For the moment, four or five clubs are very interested.

"They come to see me every weekend. My priority is to stay in England, but Spanish and Italian clubs are after me."
