Everton Interested In Signing Bastian Schweinsteiger

Everton boss Ronald Koeman wants to sign Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger in January, reports the Star on Sunday.

The Toffees boss will mull over a move for the World Cup winner when the transfer window opens, with a potential loan until the end of the season on the cards.

Should it materialise, a move to Goodison Park would offer Schweinsteiger a route of Old Trafford, where he was cast out of Jose Mourinho’s first-team squad.

The 32-year-old is yet to feature for the Portuguese following his summer appointment, although he has been brought back to train with the first-team in recent weeks.

Everton are looking to bolster their midfield department, and could make a loan move for the German international.

United are said to be willing to pay half of Schweinsteiger’s current wages, to move him on.
