Everton have reportedly been offered Inter Milan midfielder João Mário.

According to the Daily Mail, the Blues could sign the Portuguese international, 26, for a fee of about £15 million, although FC Porto and AS Monaco are also said to be interested.

He spent the second half of last season on loan at West Ham United, scoring twice and assisting once for David Moyes’ side.

Since returning to Inter, he has made 22 outings for the Italian outfit, who are third in Serie A with two games remaining, netting once this term.

Mário started his career with Sporting Lisbon, spending the 2014-15 campaign under the management of current Blues boss Marco Silva, before moving to Inter in August 2016 for roughly £35 million.

The Toffees will surely need reinforcements in central midfield this summer, with loanee André Gomes possibly returning to Barcelona or getting sold elsewhere, Idrissa Gueye continually linked with moves away from Goodison Park, and James McCarthy and Muhamed Bešić both likely to depart.
