Everton midfielder James Rodriguez has travelled to Qatar for talks with a club before a potential move to the Middle East.
The 30-year-old Colombian international’s status at Goodison has looked uncertain after manager Rafael Benitez replaced Carlo Ancelotti in the summer.
The former Real Madrid player, who joined Everton for a nominal fee a year ago, has yet to play for Benitez this season, missing several games because of a coronavirus-related issue.
His last game for the club came in a 1-0 defeat by Sheffield United on 16 May.
With Rodriguez’s wages reported to be £200,000 a week, a move to another club would be a significant financial saving for Everton.
Benitez has talked about his frustration about not being able to sign more players because Financial Fair Play rules had “killed” the club.
