Everton are considering a move for out-of-favour Manchester United defender Luke Shaw in the summer, sources close to the Merseyside club have told ESPN FC.
Shaw's future at Old Trafford is in doubt after manager Jose Mourinho again criticised him following the FA Cup win over Brighton last weekend.
The left-back was substituted at half-time, with Mourinho claiming he had made the change because the defender lacked "class and personality" in his performance.
Former Southampton defender Shaw has struggled to hold down a regular spot in the last two seasons, with Ashley Young the first-choice left-back.
Young has said Shaw can be "one of the best in the world" if he works hard and keeps his head down.
Sources have told ESPN FC that Everton are closely monitoring Shaw's situation and sent scouts to him against Brighton.
The Toffees are in the market for a new left-back as they seek a long-term replacement for Leighton Baines.
Baines, 33, has missed a chunk of this season through injury, with manager Sam Allardyce using Cuco Martina as a makeshift left-back.
Everton are expected to be busy in the summer following a disappointing season and could be willing to offer Shaw a route out of Old Trafford.
