Toffees look to bring in two more.
Everton boss Roberto Martinez is said to be weighing up a move for Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley as he looks to bring in two more players before the transfer window comes to an end, according to the Daily Mail.
The midfielder made his competitive debut for United three years ago and turns 25 later this month. He has 78 first team games under his belt but has been targeted as one of the squad’s weaker links after failing to kick-on in the last year with any consistency.
Martinez worked with Cleverley when he was in charge of Wigan for 25 games during the 2010/11 season, and has been widely credited with improving the player during that time.
United boss Louis Van Gaal made Cleverley his captain in the pre-season friendly against Roma last week and has already stated that he will inform certain players about where their future lies when the club return from the United States in the next few days.
The midfielder did not excel against Roma but like many of the United players is enjoying his time under the new Dutch coach.
Everton have already splashed out £35m on new players this summer, including Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku, but Martinez still hopes to add two new players over the next three weeks.
