Everton are set to join Manchester United and Arsenal in the race to sign Kevin Strootman – but only if David Moyes stays.
A report in the Daily Mirror claims the Scot has the PSV Eindhoven star on his summer transfer targets but may have to go head-to-head with Arsene Wenger and Sir Alex Ferguson.
Both Arsenal and Manchester United have reportedly sent scouts to watch Strootman in action and that his club expect a fee somewhere in the region of £17million.
The Holland international is an energetic midfielder and could provide some of the presence in the Manchester United midfield that some claim is missing.
Despite only having just won a 13th Premier League title, Old Trafford boss Sir Alex Ferguson will no doubt be setting out plans for the summer transfer market.
However, Arsenal are reportedly looking to sign a defensive midfielder and the 23-year-old is more than capable of fulfilling that role.
Arsene Wenger has been tipped to spend heavily in the coming transfer window as the Gunners look to reenergise their squad to challenge for honours once more.
Everton may struggle to land Strootman if the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal are interest.
However, star Toffees midfielder Marouane Fellaini has been tipped to move on this summer and his sale could help fund a bid for Strootman.
