Everton boss Ronald Koeman is keen to be reunited with Southampton right back Cuco Martina according to Sky sources.

We are are told the fee involved is £2.5m as Koeman looks to strengthen his defensive options at Goodison Park and provide cover for Seamus Coleman. 

Koeman signed the 26-year-old form FC Twente last summer on a two-year deal but he has fallen out of favour under Claude Puel at St Mary's.

He was not in the Southampton squad for games with Watford and Manchester United.

Martina plays his international football for Curacao and lists Twente and Jong Twente as former clubs.

Speaking last week, Koeman said: "What I like to have is, really, two players for each position in the team and we need to have that competition to get the best out of each player."
