Carlo Ancelotti has refused to rule out arrivals at Everton during the January Transfer Window with the club linked with a host of big names.

The Toffees are four points off the top of the Premier League and could play a big role in what is developing into the most competitive title race in years.

Mid-season additions could help the club’s bid to climb into the top four with Sami Khedira among those linked with a move to Goodison Park. The Germany international has entered the final six months of his contract at Juventus and has indicated he is keen to try his hand at the Premier League.

Everton are currently priced as 8/11 favourites to sign Khedira with Tottenham also in the mix at 5/1.

The Merseyside club are also the current favourites to sign Real Madrid midfielder Isco before the January window closes. The Spaniard has been limited to just three starting appearances in La Liga this term and while reports in Spain suggest he may prefer to stay in his homeland, the bookies suggest Ancelotti’s side are firmly in the running at 2/1.

Everton were unsuccessful in their bid to sign Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero during the summer window but could yet return this month. A move to Goodison is currently priced at 11/2 with Valencia current favourites at 9/4.

And in the seemingly unlikely event of Wilfried Zaha leaving Crystal Palace this month, Everton are his most likely destination according to Sky Bet at 6/1.
