Ramy Bensebaini looks set to leave Rennes this summer, with French publication L'Equipe claiming Everton and Stuttgart are both interested.
Bensebaini is under contract at Roazhon Park until the summer of 2020, but the Ligue 1 club have learned of strong interest from Germany.
In fact the Bundesliga currently seems the most likely destination for the defender, but the Toffees are keeping a close eye on developments as they they look to bolster their squad.
The Premier League side have already sold one centre-back this summer with Ramiro Funes Mori joining Villarreal and the Daily Star claims Ashley Williams could also be moved on.
New manager Marco Silva is looking to be his own stamp on things at Goodison Park alongside newly appointed director of football Marcel Brands.
Central defence appears to be a priority for new recruits and Bensebaini is one of those being considered to come in and freshen up the back line.
