Everton have told Manchester United that they would be willing to sign Chris Smalling or Victor Lindelof.

According to TeamTalk, Everton are prepared to move for one of the pair if they are unable to seal a deal for Marcos Rojo.

The report claims that Everton are looking at other options in the event that Rojo rejects a move to Goodison Park.

Reports last month claimed that Everton had agreed a deal for Rojo, although his wages demands were above what the club were willing to pay.

Manchester United are eager to offload a central defender before the end of the transfer window, with Jose Mourinho on the brink of securing the signing of Toby Alderweireld from Tottenham for £60m.

Lindelof, Smalling and Rojo are all in the firing line, as club’s circle around the trio.

TeamTalk claim that Lindelof would be available as a loan option, whilst Smalling could join on a permanent basis.
