James Rodriguez for Everton medicals
By Toju Sote
Colombian star James Rodriguez will have a medical at Everton early next week as the Toffees close in on the Real Madrid forward.
Everton emerged as a surprise destination for Rodriguez earlier this week and now the Merseysiders are confident of securing a deal.
The Real Madrid playmaker is not wanted by Zinedine Zidane and the Spanish giants are eager to ship him out this summer.
Rodriguez made just eight La Liga appearances last season having spent the two previous campaigns on loan at Bayern Munich.
The Colombian is out of contract next summer and the Toffees are working to sign him on a permanent basis, although a loan agreement is a possibility.
