Real Madrid are interested in signing Everton goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg, according to reports.

The 36-year-old joined the Toffees from Fulham in the summer of 2016 and has made 26 appearances for the club.

However, the 58-time Netherlands international has played just five matches for the Merseyside outfit since the arrival of Jordan Pickford in 2017.

Pickford is Everton’s undisputed number 1.

And now Football Insider report that the experienced ‘keeper is a target for Spanish giants Real.

It’s claimed that Los Blancos have added the ex-Ajax stopper to their shortlist as Keylor Navas has been linked with a switch to Paris Saint-Germain.

The La Liga outfit have reportedly been in touch with the Dutchman’s representatives with the view to a possible switch before the transfer window shuts on September 2.

Stekelenburg, who has also had spells with Southampton, Monaco and AS Roma, would play back-up to former Chelsea star Thibaut Courtois if he were to move to Real.
