Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof could reportedly be on his way to Everton in a £35m deal, just a year after arriving at Old Trafford from Benfica.

Everton manager Marco Silva has earmarked Manchester United centre-back Victor Lindelof as a priority £35m signing, according to a report.

The Portuguese is said to have handed over a list of summer transfer targets to the Toffees' hierarchy after holding discussions with director of football Marcel Brands.

United defender Lindelof is among those under consideration by Everton, with the Sweden international enduring a difficult debut campaign at Old Trafford.

Following a £31.5m switch from Benfica last year, the 23-year-old was restricted to 13 Premier League starts as he struggled to settle under Jose Mourinho.

Silva is said to have had his eyes on Lindelof since impressing for Benfica between 2013 and 2017, but it is unknown whether Mourinho is ready to offload.
