According to a recent report by Football Insider, Everton is considering making a move for Scott McTominay from Manchester United during the upcoming summer transfer window.
While Newcastle United is also interested in signing the talented midfielder, Everton is looking to enter the race as well.
Everton finds itself in a crucial position this summer as they need to carefully plan their next steps. Reports have indicated that the club is facing financial constraints, potentially limiting their ability to spend on transfers.
After narrowly avoiding relegation, it is essential for Everton to strengthen their squad to avoid a similar situation in the future.
However, due to their financial predicament, Everton manager Sean Dyche acknowledges that he may need to sell players before bringing in new additions.
One player who could potentially depart is Amadou Onana, with Manchester United reportedly interested in the £60 million-rated midfielder.
The funds generated from player sales could provide Everton with the means to pursue new signings, with Scott McTominay emerging as a target.
The Manchester United star, valued at £20 million, is expected to leave Old Trafford as manager Erik ten Hag looks to revamp his squad.
Ten Hag is already on the lookout for a new midfielder to partner with Casemiro, and McTominay may not have a place in the team next season. Despite making 39 appearances for Manchester United, only 16 of them were as a starter.
Everton sees McTominay as a potential addition to bolster their midfield, as his presence would provide the desired physicality favored by Dyche. However, they face competition from Newcastle United, who are also eager to secure the services of the talented midfielder.
Manchester United’s asking price for McTominay is reportedly set at £20 million, which is significantly lower than previously suggested figures.
Everton might face challenges in meeting this valuation, potentially giving Newcastle an advantage in the race for the midfielder.
