Premier League clubs are scrambling to take New York Red Bulls attacker Tim Cahill on-loan in January.
The Daily Mail says the 33-year-old has said he is keen to come back to England on a short-term deal.
A return to Goodison Park seemed his most likely destination but Sunderland, Newcastle, Tottenham and QPR are also interested in signing the Australia international.
Cahill had huge success at Everton after signing from Millwall in 2004, scoring 56 goals in 226 games, before leaving this summer to join the Red Bulls.
He played 14 matches, scoring once, as the MLS club finished third in the Eastern Conference to reach the play-offs, where they were knocked out by DC United.
