According to a report from the Daily Mail, Everton are reportedly prepared to sell Morgan Schneiderlin this month, and Roma are interesting in acquiring the Frenchman's services.

The 29-year-old joined the Toffees from Manchester United in January 2017, for a fee believed to be worth in the region of £20 million, but he has struggled to establish himself on Merseyside, making just 40 Premier League starts.

 

Marco Silva has plenty of options in the middle of the park, and Schneiderlin has found it hard make one of the deep-lying midfield positions his own under the Portuguese, making just seven Premier League starts for Everton.

And the Daily Mail claims that Silva is prepared to offload the 15-capped France international for a loss on the £20 million that the Blues plaid for him two years ago, and Roma are keen to bring him to the Italian capital.

The Everton boss has already suggested that he will only sign players this month if he manages to trim down his squad first, and judging by the Daily Mail's report, Schneiderlin could very well be the first casualty.
