The Sun says the Reds are planning to grab Kone from under the nose of new Everton boss Roberto Martinez.

With Luis Suarez almost certain to leave Anfield — and doubts about whether injured Daniel Sturridge will be fit for the start of the new season — Liverpool are determined to increase their firepower.
