According to reports from RMC Sport and Foot Mercato, Everton have offered Marseille goalkeeper Steve Mandanda a three-year deal - and the Toffees will meet with his agent today.

The Toffees have swooped to land Ronald Koeman was their new manager, and the former Southampton boss arrives with problems between the sticks.

Long-serving veteran goalkeeper Tim Howard has returned to the United States with MLS side Colorado Rapids, leaving Joel Robles as the only senior goalkeeper in the squad.

A number of goalkeepers have been linked with moves to Goodison Park, but it seems that the Toffees are closing in on a move for a shot stopper currently at Euro 2016.

Foot Mercato report that Everton have offered Marseille goalkeeper Steve Mandanda a three-year contract, whilst RMC Sport claim that the Toffees will hold further talks with Mandanda's agent today.

Mandanda, 31, has made over 400 appearances for Marseille since signing from Le Havre in 2007, establishing himself as one of the top goalkeepers in France - and he's currently backing up Hugo Lloris with the French national team at Euro 2016.

Now, it's believed that Mandanda has an offer to join Everton for the next three years, offering Koeman a proven goalkeeper, but despite Mandanda's agent allegedly meeting with the Toffees later today to come to terms on a move, confusion surrounds the shot stopper's contract situation.

Whilst he was originally seen as being out of contract this summer, L'Equipe reported in January that Marseille activated a clause in his deal to extend his contract until 2017, meaning Everton may have to negotiate a fee with the French side before they can secure Mandanda's signature.
