Sergio Agüero draws interest from a number of top clubs as he prepared to leave City
The Argentinian striker, 32, will become a free agent when his contract expires in the summer
And the Daily Star is now claiming that Everton is the last to show an interest in him.
While the Toffees wouldn’t be able to match Aguero’s City’s £ 240,000-a-week salary, they would reportedly make up for any wage shortages with a substantial application fee.
Agüero scored City’s opening goal in their 2-0 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday, putting them on the eve of a third Premier League title in four seasons.
The forward has scored just four goals in an injury-stricken season, but can leave City on a high level by claiming a Premier League, Champions League and Carabao Cup trophy.
His astonishing return of 258 goals in 386 games over a decade of service with City means Aguero will be in high demand this summer.

Aguero’s time at the club has seen them win four Premier League titles – with a fifth in hand – the FA Cup and six League Cups.
He needs one more goal to match Wayne Rooney’s record of 183 Premier League bouts for one club.
And his manager Pep Guardiola praised him after Saturday’s win at Selhurst Park.
“How many times has he done it?” Guardiola said. What a goal, what a player and what a man. I am completely in love with him. He is an absolute top legend, an extraordinary player.
‘People can’t believe it, but we missed him. We haven’t been able to use it often, but maybe we got it back at the right time. He knows that he has a special quality. ‘

Aguero was delighted to hit the field and impress on Saturday.
“I was finally able to play, I am so happy,” said the club’s all-time top scorer in a rare television interview.
All I needed in the box was a touch or two. Finally I got the goal. I am so happy with that.
‘It had been a long time since I hadn’t played 90 minutes. The goal was good because maybe we can win the Premier League.
‘We are waiting for tomorrow. Every game is difficult, but we are waiting for tomorrow. If Liverpool wins, of course it is better. ‘
City are confirmed as Premier League champions when Liverpool win at Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.
