Just days after removing their sporting director, Everton are understood to have opened talks to bring a former Arsenal captain back to the Premier League.
Juventus midfielder Aaron Ramsey could be on his way to Goodison Park next month, with the Serie A side looking to offload the Welshman who has featured just five times this season.
It’s understood that the Italian Giants are considering the option to cancel the 30 year-olds contract and letting him join the Toffees on a free, in order to balance their wage bill as the midfielder is one of the highest paid players at the club.
Meanwhile, Everton’s FA Cup third-round match against Hull City has been picked as one of the six games to be shown on TV.
Rafael Benitez’s side will face the Championship club on Saturday the January 8th and the match will be shown live on the BBC.
