Brighton and Everton chase Cardiff star Kenneth Zohore - sources

Everton and Brighton are battling for the signature of Cardiff City striker Kenneth Zohore, sources close to the player have told ESPN FC.

Zohore, 23, finished last season as Cardiff's top scorer with 12 goals and has flourished since the arrival of Neil Warnock as manager.

He has scored only once this season but he has been instrumental in the club's perfect start to the season, with five wins from five in the Championship.

Brighton have already seen two bids for Zohore rejected but are ready to come back with an improved offer.

But Everton have joined the chase, with manager Ronald Koeman confirming that they are in the market for a new striker.

Koeman is weighing up a move for Denmark under-21 international Zohore, who can play as a lone striker.
