Everton look set to make a move for Memphis Depay in January after manager Ronald Koeman confirmed his interest in the out-of-favour Manchester United winger.

The Holland international has played just 20 minutes of Premier League football in four substitute appearances under Jose Mourinho this season, leading to speculation he could be allowed to leave Old Trafford in the new year.

Memphis is under contract until 2019 after signing from Feyenoord for £25 million in 2015, but has been unable to seal himself a place in the team on a regular basis and Koeman could offer his compatriot the game time which he believes could change the winger's fortunes.

I would like to have him.

I think he is an interesting player. He has great individual qualities. He just needs to play games.

Everton manager pleased with Besic recuperation

Everton midfielder Muhamed Besic is progressing well in his recovery from knee surgery, according to manager Ronald Koeman.

The Bosnia international tore an anterior cruciate ligament playing against Manchester United in Wayne Rooney's testimonial in August and was expected to be sidelined for six months.

"He's progressing well," Koeman told the Liverpool Echo.

"He's on his way to being back. It's a long-term injury and you need to be patient.

"But the medical staff are really happy with Mo because he has shown a really good professional attitude. That makes it easier to come back."
