According to The Daily Mail, Everton will allow Mo Besic to leave in the summer if a club matches their £9m valuation.
Besic has been on loan at Championship club Middlesbrough since January 2018 and his future at Everton is bleak.
Fenerbahce and Besiktas lead Middlesbrough in the race to sign Besic with £9m probably out of Boro’s price range if they fail to win promotion.
And if Everton do manage to sell the Bosnia-Herzegovina international for this price, they would make a handy profit on the midfielder.
Everton landed Besic in summer 2014. The Toffees paid just £4m for the holding midfielder when he made the switch from Hungarian side Ferencvaros (The Liverpool Echo).
Five years on, Besic could leave after managing just over 50 appearances for the Merseyside club.
If Everton can sell him for their £9m asking price, they would make a £5m profit on a player who has barely featured for them in recent years.
Considering that his market value should have fallen since 2014 given his drop to the Championship, getting £9m for their forgotten 26-year-old would be a shrewd piece of business.
With those extra funds, Everton can reinvest them in their playing squad by signing a first-team quality player.
