Everton have reportedly joined West Ham United in the race to land England international Michael Carrick this summer, according to the Daily Mirror.
The Premier League side, who currently sit 12th in the English top-flight following last weekend’s 2-0 home defeat to the hands of Arsenal at Goodison Park, are interested in signing the Manchester United midfielder once the 2015-16 campaign has concluded.
The 34-year-old, who has 34 international caps for the Three Lions but is not expected to make England’s squad for Euro 2016 later this year in France, has made 33 appearances in all competitions for the Red Devils so far this season.
Carrick, who is out of contract this summer having yet to be offered a new deal at Old Trafford, will become a free agent if United let him go without extending his current deal.
The central midfielder has scored 22 goals in over 410 games for the Red Devils since arriving from Tottenham back in 2006.
Carrick is also thought to be a transfer target for West Ham.
