According to a report from the Mirror, Everton manager Ronald Koeman is prepared to offer £20million for Manchester United midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin this summer.

The French international only arrived at Old Trafford from Koeman’s former club Southampton 12 months ago, but he was in and out of the team under Louis van Gaal and it remains to be seen what Jose Mourinho has planned for him.

At his best Schneiderlin is a superb player and he could excel at Goodison Park just as he did at St Mary’s.

The same report claims Koeman may bring in two new central midfielders as well as a goalkeeper and a winger.

In other news, Calcio Mercato claims Everton are willing to pay £14.6million for AC Milan striker M’Baye Niang.

The 21-year-old is contracted to the San Siro until the summer of 2019 but he could move on for the right price this summer.

He scored eight goals and provided five assists in an injury-hit campaign and if he plays consistently there is little doubt he will improve considerably in the years ahead.

That said, Everton reportedly have big considerable competition in the form of West Ham United.
