It certainly seems as if Everton fans are liking rumours about Steven N'Zonzi.

The Sun reported on Sunday that Everton are keen on signing the 28-year-old Sevilla midfielder, who worked with Toffees boss Sam Allardyce at Blackburn.

However, the towering Frenchman has, according to The Sun, had a falling-out with Sevilla boss Eduardo Berizzo and could be available for transfer in January.

N'Zonzi, who has two caps for France, would compete with the likes of Morgan Schneiderlin, who has gone backwards in a big way following his move from Manchester United in January.

And fans of the Goodison Park club certainly seem on board for the idea of signing him.

Schneiderlin, who cost some £20 million earlier this year, has been a serious flop despite some good performances when he first arrived, but it's clear that he isn't what the Toffees need.
