Transfer from the inside Dean Jones He wouldn’t be surprised if Everton were looking into the possibility of including Inter Milan striker Alexis Sanchez at Goodison Park.
The Toffees have already bolstered their squad during the January transfer window, with Vitaly Mikolenko joining for £17m and Nathan Patterson transferring £16m from Rangers, but it looks like the Merseysiders may now look to bolster their attacking options.
What is the latest news regarding Sanchez?
The Sun has revealed that Everton have offered him the opportunity to sign Sanchez on a free transfer.
The report notes that Inter are keen to offload the Chile international’s 144 caps, less than 18 months after his move to the Serie A giants permanently.
However, European football expert Andy Brassell has expressed doubts over whether Inter coach Simone Inzaghi would be willing to allow Sanchez to leave midway despite their quest to win a second successive Serie A title.
Brassell also claimed that the 33-year-old has returned to the form he showed during his fruitful spell in the Arsenal books.
Although he has been limited to just four games so far this season, Sanchez has shown he knows where the back of the net is by putting his name on the scoresheet three times and providing another hat-trick of assists.

However, Everton will have to break down the wage structure to welcome Sanchez to Merseyside as the current Inter deal is worth £350,000-a-week.
The Toffees’ highest earner is Yerry Mina, who gets £120,000 every seven days.
What did Dean Jones say about Sanchez?
Jones will understand that Everton are interested in securing Sanchez’s services amid The Sun’s report.
The Toffees have been weakened since the summer appointment of Rafa Benitez as club president, as they currently sit near the Premier League relegation zone from the European qualification spots.

Jones would not be shocked if it leads Everton to seriously consider capitalizing on Inter’s proposal.
When asked about the possibility of Sanchez heading to Goodison Park, the in-house responsible for the transfer told GIVEMESPORT: “I wouldn’t be surprised if this is something they are exploring.”
Why would Sanchez be a good deal for Everton?
There is no escaping the fact that Sanchez has enjoyed a prolific career, having netted 174 times at club level.
Chile’s talent allowed him to appear with some of the biggest clubs in the world, including Barcelona, which led to him receiving a massive amount of trophies.
Sanchez previously earned praise from Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola, with the Spaniard insisting the ex-Manchester United man is a “fighter with character and soul” as well as a “winner”.
With Transfermarkt valuing him at £63m, many would argue that Everton get a deal if Sanchez joins for free.
