Everton boss Marco Silva wants to bring out-of-favour Manr United centre-back Victor Lindelof to Goodison Park this summer.
Silva, who was recently announced as the new Toffees manager, has drawn up a list of transfer targets as he plans a complete overhaul of the club.
And, according to the Mirror, he has prioritised a potential 35m pounds move for 23-year-old defender Lindelof.
Lindelof only made 13 league appearances for United as he struggled to make an impact following his 31.5m pound switch from Benfica last summer.
He made two costly mistakes at Huddersfield as the Red Devils slipped to a shock 2-1 defeat and the Swede is yet to live up to the reputation he developed in Portugal.
But Silva, who has an impressive knowledge of Portuguese football, rates him highly.
There's no indication that Jose Mourinho wants to ditch Lindelof and United insiders believe he will be given another season to impress the boss.
However, there is no shortage of centre-backs at Old Trafford, with Eric Bailly, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind also in the ranks.
Lindelof will travel to the World Cup with Sweden and his manager Janne Andersson expects him to eventually become a hit at United.
He said: “Victor was outstanding in our two World Cup play-off games against Italy when they didn’t score against us in either game.
