Everton are moving to trump Arsenal for FC Basle defender Aleksander Dragovic.

The Daily Express says Arsenal are thought to be in the market for a central defender this summer, and have been linked with Basel's 22-year-old stopper Dragovic.

However, Everton manager David Moyes is looking to reshape his defence ahead of next season with captain Phil Neville retiring, and the Toffees are confident of stealing a deal for the Austrian.

Like Kevin Miralles when he left Olympiacos, Dragovic is willing to ignore interest from the Emirates to join the Merseyside club.
