Last summer, Nabil Fekir came close to joining Liverpool, but the deal collapsed after the Reds tried to lower the fee, which forced Lyon to pull the plug on the transfer.

Now Everton are being linked.

The World Cup winner’s contract with the Ligue 1 outfit runs down in 2020 and the club’s president Jean-Michel Aulas admitted in February that his side are working on extending the attacking midfielder’s contract.

So far, the 25-year-old has not committed his future to his current employer and according to Calciomercato, Everton are looking at the Frenchman.

The Merseyside club ‘like’ the player and Marco Silva’s side have ‘set their eyes’ on Fekir.

It’s a very short report and the Italian outlet does not claim it to be their exclusive nor do they mention any source in the story.

Calciomercato doesn’t explain in their report whether Fekir is open to the idea of making a move to Goodison Park and if so, what would be the fee required for Everton to land him.

Earlier this week, the Frenchman insisted that he’s happy at Lyon.

“The rumours are part of a transfer window. It’s normal. I feel good here. My goal is to win a title in Lyon. I give the maximum anyway,” Fekir told Lyon’s official website.

Fekir has scored 12 goals and registered seven assists in all competitions this season.
