Everton plan swoop for Manchester United free agent

first_img no dice REVEALED Everton are targeting Manchester United star Chris Smalling, according to reports.Smalling, the centre-half, is out of contract at the end of the season and he’s been watched by Everton scouts as they weigh up a move for him. The 28-year-old has somewhat rediscovered his best form after last season was uncharacteristically poor by his standards.He’s made 14 appearances in all competitions, chipping in with a goal in United’s defeat of Watford, and is clearly regarded by Jose Mourinho as one of the club’s first-choice defenders.However, Smalling is out of contract next summer and, despite talks being held between him and the club, the former Fulham star is yet to put pen to paper on an extension.And Everton are showing interest in tempting him to Merseyside when his deal runs out in June, according to The Sun.
