Everton manager David Moyes claims that signing David Beckham from L.A.Galaxy would be of interest to him, if the chance came up.
Beckham has had loan spells with AC Milan during the American league off-season over the past two years and Moyes has already had success in bringing his team-mate Landon Donovan over for a spell at the club.
The Scot knows 35-year-old midfielder Beckham from their time playing together at Preston, where the ex-Manchester United and Real Madrid star had a loan spell early in his United career, and hopes he would be open to playing at Goodison Park.
Moyes said: ''I would hope that if David wanted to come he would pick up the phone and call me.
''If he wanted to come back to the Premier League he would only need to phone me or Phil (Neville) and we would be here for him. He knows how to get hold of Phil and he knows how to get hold of me.
''We would have to look into it financially, but if he came and said to me I would like to come and play I would have to go to the chairman and ask if we could do it, if we think we can make it work by selling enough shirts.''
