The Toffees are poised to announce Southampton boss Ronald Koeman as their new manager this week according to BBC Sport, and the Dutchman will be given the freedom to re-shape the Everton squad with the injection of transfer funds from new shareholder Farhad Moshiri.

Nkoudou, 21, joined Marseille from Nantes last summer, and already had a reputation as one of France's top young talents, before enjoying a superb season for Marseille, hitting ten goals and five assists in all competitions.

A French Under-21 international, Nkoudou has pace and dribbling ability, and having impressed so much this past season, it was never going to be long before Premier League clubs looked at him.

Now, it's believed that Everton have made contact to try and sign Nkoudou - but so have Merseyside rivals Liverpool as well as West Ham United.

That means that a real transfer battle could ensue between the three clubs, who could all be in the market for a pacey winger this summer.

Who do you think Nkoudou should sign for this summer?
