Everton are leading the chase to sign former Manchester City striker Godsway Donyoh, according to The Sun.

The 24-year-old joined the Citizens in 2011 but left on a free transfer to join Danish club FC Nordsjaelland in January 2016 having failed to break into the first-team.

He also spent time on loan with Djurgardens IF and Falkenbergs FF in Sweden before leaving Manchester.

Since signing for Nordsjaelland, Donyoh has scored 24 goals in 58 appearances for his new club including eight in 14 matches this season alone.

Also capable of playing as a left or right winger, the forward is now attracting the attention of other clubs after going on a run of scoring five goals in his last five league games.

As Donyoh’s contract with Nordsjaelland expires in 2021, any clubs wanting to sign him would have to pay a fee to do so.

Fortunately for any clubs interested, the Danes would be likely to sell due to their current financial state and he could be on his way come January.

And while Everton reportedly want to bring the Ghanaian back to England, The Sun claims Bournemouth and Leicester City are also keen and all three clubs are understood to have scouted the forward.

The Toffees are still on the lookout for a reliable goalscorer despite signing several strikers since the departure of Romelu Lukaku.

With Everton now lying ninth in the table after 11 Premier League matches, new manager Marco Silva has made a solid start since succeeding Sam Allardyce.

Centre-forward remains something of a problem position for him, although he has recently shifted Richarlison into the striker role, the Brazilian scoring twice against Brighton & Hove Albion at the weekend.

Donyoh would give him more options and flexibility, particularly as he can also be deployed as a winger.
