According to RMC Sport, Everton are interested in signing Paris Saint-Germain defender Presnel Kimpembe – but the French giants have no intention of striking a deal.
The Toffees have made six first-team additions already this summer, with Jordan Pickford, Cuco Martina, Michael Keane, Davy Klaassen, Sandro Ramirez and Wayne Rooney all arriving at Goodison Park.

However, more new signings could arrive, and despite Keane joining from Burnley in order to boost Ronald Koeman's defence, another centre back could be on the Everton transfer wish list.
Ashley Williams and Phil Jagielka are both in their 30's, whilst Ramiro Funes Mori's injury setback means that a left-footed central defender may be targeted before the end of the summer transfer window.
Now, RMC Sport report that Everton have registered their interest in signing Paris Saint-Germain talent Presnel Kimpembe – as have Liverpool and Inter Milan.
Kimpembe, 21, has emerged through the ranks at the Parc des Princes having joined PSG way back in 2005, and he has now made 38 first-team appearances for the French giants.

The defender impressed last season, particularly in the Champions League home leg victory over Barcelona, and he even earned a call-up to the French national team back in October 2016 as he emerges as one of French football's top young players.
As a result though, it's claimed that PSG think selling Kimpembe is 'out of the question', meaning that whilst Everton may see him as the perfect signing given that he can play at centre back or left back, their pursuit of the youngster may be almost impossible this summer.
