Everton have been offered Franck Ribery - but they face stiff competition for his signature

Franck Ribery

Everton (opens in new tab) have been offered the chance to sign former Bayern Munich (opens in new tab) winger Franck Ribery, according to 90min (opens in new tab).

Ribery ended his 12-year spell with Bayern when his contract expired at the end of last season.

The ex-France international has yet to find a new club but is thought to be open to a move to the Premier League with Everton.

Toffees owner Farhad Moshiri likes the idea of signing big-name players who can raise the club's profile, but manager Marco Silva is still unsure on Ribery.

The 36-year-old has received offers from the United States and Asia, while Serie A side Fiorentina are also weighing up a move for the nine-time Bundesliga champion.

Ribery scored 124 goals in 425 appearances for Bayern following his transfer from Marseille in 2007.
