Leeds United and Everton are two clubs thought to be battling for the signature of Cologne striker Jhon Cordoba, according to reports.

After taking a season to settle, the Colombian has done well for the German side over the past two campaigns, scoring 34 goals in all competitions.

According to reports from Kicker (h/t BuLinews.com), the forward’s form has caught the eye of both Leeds United and Everton.

Marcelo Bielsa seems keen to add to his squad ahead of the Yorkshire side’s first top-flight season since 2003/04, while Carlo Ancelotti is aiming to improve on the Toffees’ 12th-placed finish last term.

Despite having just a year left to run on his Cologne deal, it’s claimed that the duo would have to pay ‘well over’ £9 million to have a chance of landing the 27-year-old.

Additionally, it’s also reported that West Bromwich Albion also hold an interested in the former Mainz attacker.

At 27 years of age and coming off the back of his best two goalscoring seasons, now could be the perfect time for Cordoba to test himself in the Premier League.
