Everton could make a fresh approach to sign Manchester United playmaker Donny van de Beek in January.
The Dutchman was tipped to join the Toffees on loan this summer, but United’s hierarchy blocked the deal.
Van de Beek has since played just six minutes in the league, and he could be on the move at the turn of the year.
It is unclear whether United will sanction his exit, but his agent Guido Albers has made plans for a departure.
He approached the Toffees during the final days of the summer transfer window, but a deal failed to work out.
Toffees sporting director Marcel Brands recently confirmed the club’s interest, and they could try again to sign him in January.
The Toffees offloaded James Rodriguez to Al-Rayyan recently for around £8m which should offer them a financial boost.
They also recouped his hefty wages of around £200,000-a-week. Van de Beek could be an ideal fit in the number 10 role.
