Everton manager Ronald Koeman has refused to rule out interest from Merseyside Blues interest in Man United out-of-favour duo Memphis Depay and Morgan Scneiderlin.
Everton have been heavily linked with signing the Red Devils duo and latest comments from Dutch manager has increased the rumors surrounding pair with a Goodison Park move.
The Man United outcasts are both desperate to leave Old Trafford to return his career back on tracks after failing to play first-team football under Jose Mourinho.
France international Schneiderlin has made just eight appearances, while Depay has only four.
Koeman hopes to bolster his squad at Goodison Park to push his team to fight for European football and after being asked about his interest for the Red Devils pair Dutchman has refused to rule out it: ‘Everyone inside here knows my opinion and they know the opinion of Steve Walsh, so we will see.’
Former Southampton manager has admitted that his club must consolidate their position in the top-half of the Premier League this term and target more success next term.
‘For the rest of the season it’s easy,’ he told the Guardian. ‘We have to try to keep this position in the table because there is a big difference between the first six and the rest of the teams.
‘That’s already difficult, we know, so for the rest of the season the aim is to improve and change the team.
‘That’s not done by one week, one night, two months. We know it and need to accept it – and how difficult it is to accept.’
