According to a report in the Mirror, Everton and Southampton are keen to make summer offers for Saivet, with Swansea and Bournemouth also interested in the £4 million-rated forward.
The 24-year-old rose to prominence as a youngster, progressing through all France’s youth football levels, and building a reputation as a hotshot striker who could be the next Thierry Henry.
His career has somewhat stalled since that early promise, although he is a regular for Bordeaux, having made 149 appearances for the club as a pacy winger - scoring 19 goals and assisting 11 more.
This season has been a disruptive one with the Ligue 1 side, having only managed 14 appearances in all competitions, due to a knee injury which kept him out from the beginning of the campaign up until the start of 2015.
Able to play through the middle as a second striker, as well as in the wide positions, Saivet has also gained international recognition, although not with France.
A full Senegalese international, Saivet made his debut for the country in 2013, and has gone on to make nine appearances, without yet scoring a goal.
Everton and Southampton have shown their interest after a poor season by his standards, but the £4 million price stated in the report seems acceptable for a young winger who has consistently played at the top level of French football, and with two years left before his Bordeaux contract expires.
