A new challenge over at Goodison Park could now await Gareth Bale as Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti has reportedly asked for his signing.
It is claimed, however, that Everton don’t want to pay a penny in transfer fees.
Ancelotti managed Bale at Real Madrid, signing the Wales international from Tottenham back in the summer transfer window of 2013.
Together they won the Champions League, with the 31-year-old scoring in the 2014 triumph over Atletico Madrid.
Now a reunion on Merseyside could be on the cards.
Should Everton sign Bale, they’d boast one of the best attacks in the entire Premier League.
They could deploy the veteran on the right wing, with Rodriguez in the No 10 role and Richarlison on the left.
Together, the trio could work together to create chances for the prolific Dominic Calvert-Lewin to score.
