Everton fans want Smalling before the transfer deadline

According to TEAMtalk, Everton have informed Manchester United that they will take Chris Smalling or Victor Lindelof if they fail to secure a deal for Marcos Rojo this summer.

Rojo has been strongly linked with a move away from the 20-time English champions, and it is understood that Everton are in the hunt for the Argentine.

However, according to TEAMtalk, the Merseyside outfit have made it clear that they are also prepared to take Lindelof or Smalling from the Red Devils ahead of Thursday’s deadline.

Toby Alderweireld is said to be on the verge of joining United from Tottenham Hotspur, which means that at least one centre-back will be leaving Old Trafford.

Smalling, who has won two Premier League titles at United, was a favourite of Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho last term, but he failed to make the England squad for the 2018 World Cup.

Lindelof, meanwhile, found it difficult to settle following his move from Benfica ahead of the 2017-18 campaign.

The Everton fans have been discussing the situation on social media, and a number have called on director of football Marcel Brands to move for Smalling.
