David Moyes is set to turn his attention to Marouane Fellaini after failing to secure a deal for top target Cesc Fabregas, according to the Mirror.
The Manchester United manager is ready to raid his old club for the Belgium international, who is desperate to join a club in Champions League.
The Toffee’s are keen to hold on to the 25 year old, but may be willing to let him go if their valuation, thought to be around £23.5m is met.
However, it is understood that United have a lower figure for the midfielder in mind, so the clubs could be set for a tussle over his services.
Arsenal have also been linked with a move for Fellaini, though manager Arsene Wenger has been put-off by Everton’s price tag.
Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas has been the Premier League champion’s top target, though the Catalan club have knocked back both of United’s bids for the former Arsenal captain.
