EVERTON are reportedly back in for the signature of Manchester United outcast Donny van de Beek.
The Netherlands international is said to be ‘begging’ United officials to let him end his Old Trafford nightmare this month.
Crystal Palace are offering him a route out with a last-gasp loan deal before the transfer window slams shut next week.
But transfer guru Fabrizio Romano now claims the Toffees are back in the mix for the 24-year-old playmaker.
Van De Beek had pushed for a permanent move to Goodison Park last summer.
That fell through as United nixed the deal in a hint the player would form part of their plans for the coming season.
Romano reports the imminent arrival of Frank Lampard as manager has rebooted efforts to land the ex-Ajax star.
Lamps is set to take the hot seat after Rafa Benitez was given the sack earlier this month.
United chiefs remain desperate to see their £39million signing come good in a red shirt.
But Van De Beek is clamouring for a move as he battles to win back his Netherlands spot before this year’s Qatar World Cup.
He hardly had a look-in under previous boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and has played just seven minutes of football under new manager Ralf Rangnick.
The German tactician is reportedly ‘reluctant’ to let the youngster leave – but Van De Beek just wants to play after seeing his career nosedive since his August 2020 arrival at the Theatre of Dreams.
