Everton are in advanced talks with West Ham´s French-born Senegalese international striker Demba Ba.

The 26-year-old joined West Ham United on a 3-year-deal from German Bundesliga side TSG 1899 Hoffenheim on 28 January 2011, but despite the powerful strikers impressive haul of 7 goals in 10 Premier League starts, West Ham were unable to avoid relegation from the Premier League and the striker is keen for a move.
