Everton are in pole position to land the dropped Manchester City keeper, Joe Hart after boss Pep Guardiola told him to find a new club.
Liverpool are not in the running for the 29-year-old and a move to Sevilla is unlikely, despite interest from the Spaniards.
That leaves Toffees chief Koeman with a clear run at bringing Hart to Goodison on a season-long loan.
City have agreed a deal in principle for Claudio Bravo to arrive from Barcelona after Guardiola made it clear Hart was not in his plans.
City’s hierarchy wanted Hart to stay and continue his association with the club from before the time of the Abu Dhabi takeover.
But Guardiola was adamant he wanted a goalkeeper comfortable with the ball at his feet, ruthlessly axing Hart and picking understudy Willy Caballero instead.
Everton are a serious option as other clubs have already sorted out a first-choice keeper.
Maarten Stekelenburg has arrived but Koeman is considering using the Dutchman as back-up if a Hart deal is sealed.
