Everton have reportedly asked about Jean Michel Seri.

Nice's Ivorian midfielder Jean Michael Seri kicks the ball during the French L1 football match Nice vs Angers on May 14, 2017, at the Allianz Riviera stadium in Nice, southeastern France.

France Football reported last week that Everton have registered an interest in Nice midfielder Jean Michel Seri.

Much of the speculation regarding Everton transfers has centered around attacking players.

According to The Guardian, the Toffees are close to signing Besiktas hitman Cenk Tosun, while The Daily Mail claim that the Goodison Park club are interested in Theo Walcott.

Nevertheless, it would appear as if Everton boss Sam Allardyce also has his eye on a centre midfielder as France Football claim that Seri is the subject of interest.

The 26-year-old was a regular fixture in the gossip columns during the summer, having been linked to a host of Premier League clubs and Barcelona.
