Chelsea weighing up 3m move for Steven Pienaar

Chelsea are pondering a £3million bid for Everton's Steven Pienaar. The 28-year-old midfielder is out of contract in the summer and looked destined to join Tottenham but Carlo Ancelotti is eager to freshen up his squad and is willing to test Everton's resistance to a sale. On the move: Tottenham are also said to be keen on the Everton midfielder Manager David Moyes desperately needs funds to strengthen his side with a striker, but he is loath to sell the South African - especially with midfielder Tim Cahill away with Australia at the Asian Cup. Moyes would struggle to replace Pienaar for £3m and would prefer to gamble on the free market in the summer unless Chelsea have makeweights to offer on loan. Fox in the box: Leicester are interested in signing Everton striker Yakubu The added bonus for Chelsea is that Pienaar is not cup-tied in Europe but Everton face Chelsea in the FA Cup and Moyes would want Pienaar to at least help them overcome that hurdle. Leicester are continuing their pursuit of Everton striker Yakubu and that may at least allow Moyes to make a move for Monaco's Dieumerci Mbokani.  Stoke City 2 Everton 0: Freak Jagielka gaffe caps Toffees' miserable afternoonTottenham target Pienaar insists Everton need to buy new playersEVERTON FC
