Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti has turned his attention to Diogo Dalot in a bid to bolster his defensive options.
The Portugal Under-21 full-back is out of favour and could be one of the players offloaded to raise funds for Manchester United’s recruit drive this summer.
Ancelotti could make a £10million move for Dalot, 21 as he seeks a long-term replacement for Seamus Coleman, according to the Daily Mirror.

His versatility also appeals as he could cover for Lucas Digne at left-back, as well as play in midfield or as a wing-back.
Dalot missed United’s 2-1 win over LASK in the Europa League on Wednesday, and may now have played his last game for the club.
Barcelona are also reportedly ready to launch a bid for Dalot.
Dalot only joined United in 2018 but has made just 11 appearances in all competitions this term
The Catalans were keen to sign Dalot back in 2018 when he was on the books at Porto but were outbid by United, who paid £19 million to secure his signature.
But his time at Old Trafford hasn’t gone according to plan, with Dalot making just 11 appearances in all competitions this season.
