David Beckham's Inter Miami in talks to sign Everton keeper Jonas Lossl on transfer ahead of new MLS seasonJanuary 8, 2021
INTER MIAMI are reportedly in talks to sign Everton goalkeeper Jonas Lossl ahead of the new MLS season.
David Beckham's club need a new goalkeeper for the 2021 campaign – likely to start in March – after refusing to extend veteran stopper Luis Robles' contract.
Lossl is reportedly eager to quit Goodison Park after slipping to third in the pecking following the arrival of Robin Olsen.
The Miami Herald claim he wants game time to secure his place in Denmark's squad for this summer's European Championship.
But Inter Miami reportedly face competition from Ligue 1 outfit Marseille.
Lossl has bounced between Everton and Huddersfield following an initial loan move to the Terriers in 2017.

An impressive debut campaign in the Premier League earned him a permanent move to the John Smith's Stadium.
Huddersfield endured a nightmare second season in the top flight which ended in relegation so he joined Everton on a free transfer in 2019.
He has failed to make a single appearance for the Toffees and even returned to Huddersfield on loan for the second half of last term.
Lossl would be joining a club in a state of flux if he were to make the move to Miami.
Beckham and co are on the hunt for a new manager after binning off Diego Alonso.
SunSport understands Phil Neville has held positive talks with old Manchester United pal Beckham over taking charge of his franchise.
Ex-Uruguay striker Alonso could only lead Inter Miami to a tenth-place finish in the Eastern Conference in their debut MLS season last year.
They were knocked out of the MLS Cup play-offs in the 'play-in' round.
Beckham could also be forced to change the name of the team.
They reportedly lost the first round of their legal battle with Inter Milan earlier this week.
The Serie A giants are suing for trademark infringement, claiming the term ‘Inter’ is synonymous with just them.
