OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER is reportedly a candidate to take over Everton but he wants the club to sign two Manchester United stars.
The Norwegian has been out of work since leaving the Red Devils in November 2021.
But he could be set for a return to the Premier League after holding talks with Everton, according to Fabrizio Romano.
Everton are reportedly impressed with the rebuild Solskjaer oversaw at United, qualifying for the Champions League twice and finishing as runners-up in the Europa League.
But Solskjaer, 49, is demanding the Toffees strengthen the squad before he agrees to take over.
The former striker wants Everton to sign United captain Harry Maguire and his midfield team-mate Scott McTominay.
Fortunately for Solskajer, United are believed to be willing to let the pair go to help ease financial fair play strains.
Both have seen their playing time reduce following the signings of Casemiro and Lisandro Martinez.
Maguire could be available on loan with West Ham seeing a bid rejected for the England star.
McTominay has also attracted interest from elsewhere in the Prem, most notably Newcastle.
Everton have a list of managerial candidates but appear to have missed out on Marcelo Bielsa, who is demanding £6million a year.
Sean Dyche and David Moyes have also been linked with the job, as has former Everton boss Sam Allardyce – though he revealed he has not been contacted for the position.
