Everton chief executive Robert Elstone has confirmed the club are in talks to bring Los Angeles Galaxy striker Landon Donovan to Goodison Park on a short-term loan.
Major League Soccer's season has finished and any deal to secure Donovan would be similar to the one which has seen Galaxy team-mate David Beckham re-join AC Milan next month.
"Landon is a player David Moyes has identified as someone he would like to bring to the club," chief executive Robert Elstone told the club's website, evertonfc.com.
"We are working to make that happen and hope we can reach agreement soon with all the appropriate parties."
If negotiations are successfully completed, the forward would join Everton on January 2.
