Everton manager Roberto Martinez is interested in signing Inter Milan centre-back Nemanja Vidic and could make a stunning bid for the former-Manchester United star.
The Serbian defender has only been in Italy for one season, after agreeing to leave United for Inter last year, but after a turbulent debut campaign in Serie A, his future is far from certain and could be away from the San Siro.
Vidic made 23 Serie A appearances for Roberto Mancini's side throughout the 2014/15 campaign, but failed to settle completely in the new country, putting in some questionable performances.

Vidic in Italy
The 33-year-old struggled to adapt earlier on in the season but seemingly fitted in and adapted slowly but surely near the end of the campaign.
However, that didn't stop him from being linked with a move away from the San Siro in January, with Manchester United reportedly interested in re-signing him halfway through the season in order to add experience to their backline.

Despite the speculation, Vidic stayed put, but that hasn't stopped fresh transfer speculation emerging this summer.
According to reports, Everton are interested in signing the centre-back and could make a formal move over the summer.
The Toffees have lost Sylvain Distin after he was released at the end of the season and Martinez is eager to add some experience into his squad, especially his backline.
Distin has moved on and agreed to join AFC Bournemouth, leaving Everton with just Phil Jagielka and John Stones as recognised centre-backs at the club.
Stones on the move?
However, Stones' future is far from certain as well, with Manchester City and Chelsea circling around the young Englishman.
The young defender is tipped for a bright future and has already been labelled as the future John Terry, and with Martinez wary of bigger clubs interested in signing him, the Spaniard is eager to sign a new centre-back.
A move back to England could suit Vidic after a tough debut season in Italy, but whether he'd agree to join Goodison Park is another matter.
The Toffees would have to pay big bucks in order to persuade the Serbian to swap Milan for Merseyside.
