Everton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin has been linked with a late move to West Ham ahead of Wednesday’s transfer deadline.

A number of outlets are now reporting the rumour, with Sky Sports News claiming West Ham are willing to pay £20m for the midfielder.

The French international only joined Everton from Man Utd 12 months ago and impressed in his early appearances for the Toffees.

However, the 28-year-old has struggled for form this campaign and has bore the brunt of the fans’ frustration at the club’s poor results.

Sam Allardyce has refused to rule out further transfer activity ahead of Wednesday’s deadline, while also suggesting any incomings will rest on potential departures.

The Toffees have frequently been linked with Sevilla’s Steven N’Zonzi, who would appear to be the natural replacement for Schneiderlin should he leave Goodison Park.
