English Premier League side Everton have joined the race for the signature of Ghanaian forward Benjamin Tetteh.

The former Ghana U-20 striker has been on the radar of several English clubs including Wolves and Burnley following his form this season in the Czech topflight league with Sparta Prague.

The six feet four inch target-man Benjamin Tetteh is "being tracked" by Everton according to reports in England.

The powerful forward who is also adept on the floor has scored nine goals in 15 appearances for Sparta Prague this season and has already been the subject of an 8million euros bid by Turkish side Galatasaray.

Sparta are holding out for 12million - and perhaps in a move to force Galatasary's hand Everton, West Ham and Bournemouth have all suddenly been linked with the 21-year-old .

Meanwhile, a more expensive striking option linked with the Toffees is Espanyol striker Borja Iglesias , who has a 28 million euros buy-out clause.

According to Marca Everton were ready to activate the clause, but Iglesias has turned down the chance to move to England preferring to remain in Spain.
