The Toffees are interested in Schneiderlin, who they believe would improve their midfield options.
Everton are reportedly set to make a £20 million offer for Schneiderlin in the coming days, and the French international is said to be keen to move to Goodison Park.
Schneiderlin only switched to Manchester United last summer, but he had a limited impact in his first season at Old Trafford.
Schneiderlin is now said to be keen on a reunion with new Everton boss Ronald Koeman.
Schneiderlin linked up with Koeman at Southampton, and he thrived under the Dutch boss’s leadership.
If Schneiderlin does move to Everton it would be a signal of the Merseyside club’s ambition, as Koeman looks to invest the £100 million he has been given to spend on the Toffees’ squad.
