Everton have held talks with England midfielder Jesse Lingard.
The 29-year-old is a free agent after his Manchester United contract expired at the end of June.
Everton boss Frank Lampard is keen to sign players before the club’s pre-season trip to the United States later this month and will have money to spend after selling Richarlison for £60m.
The Brazilian forward joined Tottenham on Friday on a five-year deal.
Lingard fell out of favour at Manchester United last season and said he felt let down by his treatment at a club where he graduated to the first team via the club’s academy.
West Ham have twice tried to sign the England international on a permanent basis, while Newcastle have also been interested.
