Wigan Athletic striker Arouna Kone is keen to move on.

The Sun says Liverpool, Everton - managed by former Latics boss Roberto Martinez - and Crystal Palace lead the race for the 29-year-old, now rated at £10m.

“I’ve had plenty of approaches,” said Kone. “I can’t reveal the names of the clubs.

“But Crystal Palace have gone up, and from the moment a club is in the Premier League that is good for me.

“I’m under contract with Wigan for two more years. But if there is an offer that is good for both me and Wigan I will seek to leave.”
