Cahill, 38, has apparently received three offers to play outside of the A League with an English League One side and a Japanese J2 League outfit also keen on him.

But Turkish Super Lig side Karabukspor are favourites to bag his signature.

Midfielder Cahill played under David Moyes at Everton from 2004-12.

He made 257 starts and scored 68 goals in a highly successful stay on Merseyside.

He was signed from Millwall and moved on to play for New York Red Bulls and Shanghai Shenhua before joining Melbourne in the summer of 2016.

It is thought Cahill is keen to join Soccerroos’ teammate Tony Popovic at struggling Karabukspor.

Karabukspor have lost their last six matches in the Super Lig and are bottom of the table after scoring just 13 goals in 14 games.

The move will see Cahill become the second Australian in the Turkish top flight, with Aziz Behich currently in red-hot form for Bursaspor.

He leaves Melbourne having made precious little impact.

Cahill’s reputation as arguably the most popular and well-known player in Australia led people to believe his move to the A-League would be a boost for the competition.

He signed a multi-million dollar three-year contract but, in tghe twilight of his career, failed to make a big impact

Sadly, he spent much of his time time as an impact substitute. Meanwhile, his signing did little to raise Melbourne’s average gate of around 10,500.

But he continues to be a key figure for the Socceroos, scoring the winner against Syria that took Australia to next summer’s World Cup finals.

The deal will apparently be made up of a £32.7m down payment and £2.6m in bonuses.

The 28-year-old former Blackburn Rovers and Stoke City player has fallen out of favour at Sevilla following a row with the management.

N’Zonzi, who stands 6ft 3ins, was upset at his half-time substitution against Liverpool in the Champions League last month.

He is known to be keen to return to the Premier League and could be the big midfield enforcer Arsenal have been looking for since the days of Patrick Vieira and Emmanuel Petit.

Besides Arsenal, Everton – now managed by his former Blackburn boss Sam Allardyce – are thought to have been on his trail.

N’Zonzi recently told France Football: “My future is somewhere else. We just have to wait until December is over and everything will be done.

“I hope Sevilla qualify in the Champions League and have good luck in the future, but I will not be part of that adventure.

“What hurts is the way everything is going to end. It hurts, of course, but for now the team is functioning.

“There’s only a short time left, just December to pass, and it’s better that my time at Sevilla stops then.”

N’Zonzi joined Sevilla from Stoke in 2015 in a £7 million deal, and he has largely been successful in Spain.
