Wigan striker Arouna Kone has rejected the idea of joining Norwich and Swansea because he will only entertain joining Everton.
That's the latest reports from the British media as the 29-year-old Ivory Coast international makes it perfectly clear to Wigan boss Owen Coyle that he wants a reunion with Roberto Martinez at Goodison Park.
Following Wigan Athletic's relegation from the Premier League Kone has made it clear that he wants to leave the club.
The striker who scored 13 goals last season has no intention of hanging around the DW Stadium.
'You always have ambitions as a footballer, and I don`t intend to play in the English second division. he previously told the Daily Mail.
But the striker, who does have a buy-out clause, although reports suggest it to be anywhere between £5million and £6.5million, is also demanding where he makes his summer move.
Norwich and Swansea are reportedly all set to match the buy-out clause in his contract, while West Brom also continue to monitor the situation.
However the Mirror have reported that Kone is only interested in working with Roberto Martinez, the man who brought him to the Premier League in a £3.5million move from Levante last season.
Great news for Everton, but it also begins a potentially messy transfer, with the player blocking moves to teams willing to match the asking price, while Everton and Wigan argue over a potential transfer fee.
Will Owen Coyle accept a penny less from Everton that he could get elsewhere? He may well have to, but this one could drag.
