Manchester United defender Jonny Evans is being tipped to join Premier League rivals Everton before the close of the summer transfer window.
SkyBet price the Toffees at 8/13 to have the Northern Irish international in their ranks before September 3rd, whilst its 6/4 that the Red Devils keep hold of the player. West Brom are next in the market at 6/1, with Arsenal an unlikely destination at a price of 12/1.
No place under LVG?
Evans' future at Old Trafford has been the source of much speculation this summer, with the 27-year-old expected to be the man to make way should a new centre back arrive at the club in the coming weeks.

Louis van Gaal has been linked with the likes of Sergio Ramos and Nicolas Otamendi this summer and it's unclear who is currently the number one pairing at Manchester United. Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo are all vying for places, whilst Dutchman Daley Blind can also play in the position if required.
That could leave Evans out in the cold, and the bookmakers clearly believe his future now lies elsewhere after more than a decade with the Red Devils.
Always on the fringes
Despite recent comments from Roberto Martinez that reports linking the player to Goodison Park were false, it appears Everton is a likely destination for the man who has always been on the fringes of the first team under Sir Alex Ferguson, David Moyes and Van Gaal.
The constant speculation surrounding the future of Jon Stones could well be having an impact on this particular market, and if the young Englishman does eventually leave Merseyside then the Toffees will need to find a replacement.
These odds suggest Evans is the man already being lined-up, and whilst the bookies rarely get these wrong it appears there still might be some way to go before the former Sunderland loanee joins the club.
