Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero is being linked with a switch to Everton.
The 33-year-old has been pushed down to third place in the pecking order at Old Trafford behind David de Gea, and Dean Henderson, who has just signed a six-year deal worth £100,000 a week.
United could be open to selling Romero, who is valued at £18 million.
Aston Villa were interested in signing him, but his wage demands have proved to be a major stumbling block for them.
And now Everton are ready to step-in, as they look to add genuine competition to their squad for current England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, who had a poor campaign last season, but kept his place because there was no credible alternative.
Everton Sporting Director Marcel Brands already knows Romero well. They were both together at AZ Alkmaar when, in 2009, managed by Louis van Gael, they won the Eredivisie for only the second time in their history.
