Everton are reportedly eyeing moves for unsettled Tottenham duo Dele Alli and Harry Winks, whilst Juventus midfielder Sami Khedira has confirmed he has held talks with Carlo Ancelotti regarding a move to Merseyside.
Alli and Winks have fallen out-of-favour with Spurs this season with the former having been strongly linked with an exit from the north London side, having not started a Premier League fixture since the opening day of the season.
The 24-year-old’s fall from grace has seen him lose his place in the England squad and he is also understood to be on the radar of Paris Saint-Germain, as he seeks regular first-team football in a bid to regain his international place ahead of Euro 2021.
According to the Mirror, Everton are also admirers of Winks who is another player seeking first-team opportunities to keep alive his England ambitions, having fallen down the pecking order following the summer signing of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.
Winks has made just three starts in the Premier League this season and is believed to be open to the possibility of a loan move, with Everton set to enquire about short-term deals for either player next month.
Ancelotti is keen to strengthen his midfield and has also made contact with out-of-favour Juventus star Khedira, who has been deemed surplus to requirements at the Bianconeri and is seeking to depart on a free transfer in January.
The former Germany international played under Ancelotti at Real Madrid and revealed he has spoken to the Everton boss, raising the possibility of the 33-year-old heading to the Premier League.
“We spoke on the phone and wrote,” Khedira told Bild. “You know my situation.
“I’m open to a new sporting challenge. I have had a difficult time and want to play football again, fighting for three points week after week. That’s what I long for.
“At the moment I still have so much strength and energy, so I am not dealing with summer 2021, but with December and January. A change is realistic, my full focus is on that.”
