Everton line up outcast Man City forward to replace blockbuster Man United target

Everton will consider a move for outcast Manchester City forward Wilfried Bony should Romelu Lukaku leave this summer, according to the Sunday People.

The latter has been strongly linked with a mega money move to Manchester United at the end of the season after a thoroughly impressive season on Merseyside.

After a frustrating campaign last year, the Belgian has largely proved he has been worth the £28m the Toffees shelled out for him in the summer of 2014.

With speculation surrounding his future at Goodison Park, the club have reportedly switched their attentions to Bony as a potential summer replacement.

The Ivorian has struggled since his own big money move to the Etihad in January 2015 and has made just 40 league appearances ever since, scoring ten goals.

As Pep Guardiola prepares to takeover in Manchester in the summer, the former Swansea marksman is not expected to keep his place in the squad.
