Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley has emerged as a £15m summer transfer target for Everton, with Roberto Martinez keen on working with the under-fire England star once again, according to the Sunday People.
Cleverley has been heavily criticised for his performances this season, and has been the scapegoat for Manchester United's poor results this campaign.
But the Everton boss is interested in offering the 24-year-old a way out of Old Trafford, after the midfielder impressed during a loan spell at Wigan three years ago, while Martinez was in charge.
Cleverley was a regular in United's title winning side last season, as well as Roy Hodgson's England side during qualification for the World Cup, however has found first team chances limited in recent weeks following a mountain of criticism that has been thrown at him, including an online petition demanding his exclusion from the England squad.
Despite the negativity surrounding the midfielder, Martinez feels Cleverley could be a shrewd signing for Everton, and would fit in with the style of play he has imposed on the Toffees, although it remains to be seen if David Moyes would sanction the sale, wary he still has what it takes to be an important player at United.
Cleverley was left out of United's 4-1 home victory over Aston Villa, but could be recalled to the side for this week's visit of Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
Everton travel to Fulham later today (Sunda) looking to keep their top four hopes alive.
