Everton are ready to match Burnley’s £25m asking price for Michael Keane, according to the Express.
Toffees’ boss Ronald Koeman is a big admirer of the twenty-four year old, who made his senior England debut in last month’s 1-0 friendly defeat to World Champions Germany.
Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United – the club where the centre-back began his career – are also interested but Everton are set to steal a march on their rivals.
Keane made only a handful of appearances for the Red Devils before being sold to the Clarets via loan spells with Leicester City, Derby County and Blackburn Rovers.
Since arriving at Turf Moor he has racked up one hundred and six appearances in all competitions, a tally which includes every minute of this season’s Premier League campaign.
Sean Dyche’s side can move one step closer to Premier League safety when they host Manchester United on Sunday afternoon, with the home win priced at 19/4.
