Everton will face competition from Serie A giants Juventus for Steven N'Zonzi.
Sam Allardyce will not have it all his own way in their pursuit of the Frenchman.
The former Stoke City midfielder has been out of favour at Sevilla. His last La Liga appearance was a fortnight ago.
Goal reported back in June that N'Zonzi had agreed to join Juventus, but no deal could be reached between the two clubs.
Juventus 'should' have the edge over Everton for N'Zonzi because they can offer him the chance to compete for titles, but the midfielder knows the Premier League well.
Everton's trump card is manager Sam Allardyce, who managed N'Zonzi at Blackburn Rovers, and could yet manage to persuade the Frenchman to join.
