Everton set to hijack Chelsea's move for Vardy

But according to The Mirror, Chelsea are making a £40m move to land the England global before Thursday's deadline.

It is understood that Vardy knows that Everton and Chelsea would offer him wages higher than his current £100,000-a-week deal at the King Power Stadium, which was signed previous year after he turned down the chance to sign for Arsenal.

Chelsea are reportedly interested in the England global as they continue to try and strengthen before the end of the transfer window.

The Mirror reports that despite bringing Sandro Ramirez and Wayne Rooney through the door this summer, Ronald Koeman remains determined to bolster his goalscoring ranks following the departure of Romelu Lukaku, and Vardy - who is a £40 million-rated target for the champions - appears to be at the top of the Toffees' list.

But the Toffees believe they have the upper hand as Leicester's former talent scout Steve Walsh can help convince Vardy to join the Merseyside club.

Both Everton and Chelsea believe that Vardy, who rejected a move to Arsenal last summer, is now "open to a new challenge".

A deal for Vardy could take Everton's total expenditure to almost £200m, having already spent close to £150m on new recruits with Gylfi Sigurdsson the latest signing at Goodison Park.

The Mirror adds that Everton also remain interested in a move for Blues forward Diego Costa - and a loan move for the 28-year-old could potentially be discussed today as the two teams meet at Stamford Bridge.
