Everton have been linked with the Sunderland player but he is no better than what the Toffees already have.
Everton boss Sam Allardyce reportedly wants Sunderland duo Wahbi Khazri and Lamine Kone.
Sam Allardyce is interested in reuniting with his former Sunderland centre-back Kone at Everton.
Everton have again been linked with a move for Sunderland centre-back Lamine Kone.
Everton are reportedly interested in signing Lamine Kone from Sunderland in the January transfer window.
New Everton boss Sam Allardyce signed Kone - who has been linked with the Toffees, West Ham United and West Bromwich Albion since then - for Sunderland in January 2016.
Lamine Kone has fallen from grace at Sunderland, but he could still hold out hope for a Premier League reprieve.
Sunderland may be in need of a new centre-half and one of Brentford's, who has been linked with a move to Sheffield United, should come under consideration.
Sunderland are desperate to sell Lamine Kone in January - but David Moyes' West Ham are now prioritising Lewis Dunk instead.
David Moyes reportedly wants to reunite with Lamine Kone at West Ham - and Sunderland may be all too happy to let him go.
