Toffees are determined England star will still be on Merseyside at start of next season.
Everton will attempt to prevent key defender Leighton Baines from joining Premier League champions Manchester United this summer by giving the player a rise in salary, says the Daily Mirror.
The highly rated England international has been at Goodison Park for the past six seasons now, having originally signed for the Toffees from Wigan Athletic for just £6 million in July 2007.
And in the intervening six-year period, the 28-year-old has proved himself to be one of the most competent and effective full backs plying their trade in the Premier League, featuring in 246 matches in all competitions for the Merseysiders, scoring 22 goals in the process, including 16 strikes in his 199 top-flight contests to date.
As a result, new United boss David Moyes, the man who brought Baines to Everton six years ago, now wants to take him to Old Trafford, although Everton are determined to keep the left back and will increase his salary from £44,000 to £65,000 per week in order to do so.
“It’s very important and it’s a case of rewarding players, who have been phenomenal for the football club,” said recently appointed Everton manager Roberto Martinez.
“I think Leighton is in that category.
“For Leighton, as the top performer he has been in the last few years, it is important that we reward his work and make sure that he can look forward to kicking on to the next chapter of his career with Everton.
“That’s important for the club as a whole, not just the dressing room.”
