Everton remain interested in Landon Donovan despite LA Galaxy's massive asking price of £11m.
David Moyes is a big fan of the American, who enjoyed a productive loan spell at Goodison last season.
Donovan scored twice in 13 games for Everton and became a fans favourite at the club before he starred for America at the World Cup.
Major League Soccer side LA Galaxy insist Donovan is going nowhere but sources at the club claim they would listen to offers of around £11m for the 28-year-old.
Moyes will not spend that much on Donovan and he hopes Galaxy can negotiate over the price.
The Everton manager is keen to look into the market this winter and would ideally like another striker to add depth to the squad.
Galaxy are refusing to budge regarding a permanent move but sources at Goodison Park claim they would be keen on a loan deal at least.
