According to some reports, Everton are facing competition from Spanish side Sevilla for the signing of Marseille winger Lucas Ocampos.
Marseille may have to sell the 24-year-old winger to meet their Financial Fair Play problems and Everton boss Marco Silva needs another winger would be somewhat surprising even considering some of the fine players already at the club.
Ocampos is available for a fee of around €15m (£13.4 million), a bargain for a player with a wealth of experience across Europe.
The Argentine scored four goals and indirectly contributed eight in 31 games in Ligue 1 last season. And here is how some of the Everton fans reacted to the recent reports on social media.
Seen alot of him. Class player imo..
