Report: Everton eye new number one with a move for Euro 2016 goalkeeper
By Harvey Byrne
Crystal Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey is a target for Everton, according to a report.
The Sun claim that the Goodison Park outfit are eying a move for the Welsh stopper as his No1 spot at Palace is in doubt.
The 29-year-old goalkeeper has been in impressive form for Wales at Euro 2016.
He missed the opening game through injury but has started in the following four matches to help his national side reach the semi-finals of a major tournament for the first time.
However, the Eagles have already signed Marseille’s Steve Mandanda for an undisclosed fee this summer and it is thought that he could be the London club’s new first-choice keeper.

It is reported that the Goodison Park club have now short-listed Hennessey as a goalkeeper target.
The Toffees are in the market for a third player in that position this summer after they completed the signings of Holland internaitional Maarten Stekelenburg from Fulham and 18-year-old Chris Renshaw.
Hennessey has starred in 60 encounters for his country since making his debut in 2007.
The shot-stopper featured in 38 matches for Crystal Palace in the recently completed season across all competitions conceding just 47 goals and also started in the Eagle’s FA Cup final defeat against Manchester United at Wembley.
In other Everton news, the Toffees have been installed as the favourites to sign Manchester United star Daley Bind.
