Everton, Aston Villa and Sunderland are all keen on Wahbi Khazri.

Everton and Aston Villa have entered the race for Bordeaux’s Wahbi Khazri, the Daily Mail reports.

The report claims that Sunderland have made an offer for him, and are ready to open talks with the playmaker following some impressive scouting reports.

However, they now face competition from Aston Villa, Everton and Swansea City, who have all been following the attacker for the last few months whilst he has been excelling in Ligue 1.

Khazri has been one of the most effective playmakers in the French top division, with the Tunisian international managing five goals and seven assists in 20 games.

His eye catching displays have put him on the radar of the Premier League sides, although Bordeaux are against selling their most valuable asset this month whilst they are still within a chance of qualifying for Europe this season.

Whilst Sunderland are named as having made an approach for Khazri, there are no indications that either Everton or Villa have yet to make a formal bid for the talented 24-year-old.
