Jordan Pickford and Maarten Stekelenburg are currently the only two recognised goalkeepers at Everton.

With the 37-year-old’s contract at Goodison Park is set to expire in the summer, and the Toffees could to look to bring in a replacement for the Dutchman.

TuttoMercatoWeb claims the Merseyside club are ‘following’ Hellas Verona’s Marco Silvestri, who kept nine clean sheets and conceded 26 goals in 25 league matches this season.

The Italian spent three seasons at Leeds United before moving to Hellas Verona in 2017. Speaking to Calciomercato at the end of last month, the stopper said his spell with the Whites was “very educational”.

TMW states that having had the experience of playing in England, Silvestri is considered as a transfer target by Carlo Ancelotti’s side.

Everton, for the time being, are only following the keeper. Should they decide to make an approach for Silvestri, they could face resistance from Hellas Verona.

That’s because Gazzetta dello Sport explained at the start of this month that Hellas Verona’s management plan to build a squad for the next season around certain players and Silvestri’s name is included on that list.
