Everton have reportedly had late offers for Chris Smalling and Alex Iwobi rejected.
The meryeside club are eager to bring in a central defender and winger before the deadline after a busy summer at Goodison
Wilfried Zaha also emerged as a target but Crystal Palace are demanding at least £80m for the wantaway winger.
And that has led to Everton turning their attention to Smalling and Iwobi.
Reports understand a loan offer was made to Manchester United for defender Smalling.
But despite signing Harry Maguire in a record deal, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still sees Smalling as an integral part of his plans.
Everton’s offer for Alex Iwobi, believed to be worth £30m, has also been rejected by Arsenal .
The Nigerian international’s future at the Emirates is unclear following the arrival of Nicolas Pepe from Lille.
Everton are said to have offered £25m plus add-ons for Iwobi, although Arsenal have rejected the bid.
It is unclear if they will return with an improved offer before the transfer window closes on Thursday at 5pm.
