Everton are wrapping up a deal for CSKA Moscow striker Vagner Love this week.

The Times says Everton have agreed a deal with CSKA Moscow for Love, the Brazil striker, who is expected to join on a season-long loan with a view to a permanent £13 million move that would smash the club's transfer record.

Love, 24, who has been capped 21 times, is due on Merseyside for a medical today, with Everton hoping to wrap up a deal in the next 48 hours, provided that there are no problems regarding the player's application for a work permit.
