According to a report in the Daily Mirror, Maarten Stekelenburg is set to become Everton’s first signing under Ronald Koeman.

The Dutch stopper is currently at Fulham, but he appears to have little future at Craven Cottage.

Fulham cannot keep affording to fund Stekelenburg’s wages without Premier League football, and that means that they are open to doing a cut-price deal.

Everton are now set to sign the 33-year-old for a fee of just £750,000, as Koeman looks to enhance his goalkeeping options at Goodison Park.

Everton allowed Tim Howard to leave the club this summer, leaving Joel Robles as their only current senior stopper.

Robles was Everton’s first choice towards the back end of last campaign, but it is widely expected that Koeman will upgrade his goalkeeper this summer.

Whether Stekelenburg would move to Everton as number one remains to be seen, but the Dutch international is reportedly set to make the switch to Merseyside in the near future.
