Everton reportedly watched French sides Lille and Rennes in action this week.
According to the Daily Mail, Everton sent scouts to watch Lille take on Rennes on Wednesday night as they consider transfer targets.
Lille have endured a tumultuous season having seen Marcelo Bielsa's reign end prematurely, and they find themselves 18th in the Ligue 1 as Christophe Galtier attempts to turn their season around.
Lille were in action again on Wednesday night, as they hosted Rennes in Ligue 1, but they slipped to a 2-1 home defeat, as James Siliki and Benjamin Andre cancelled out Junior Alonso's opener.
It's claimed that City were watching Lille midfielder Boubakary Soumare as they plot a move for the teenager, and a number of players fit the bill for Everton.
Much like Soumaoro, another reported Everton target – Wahbi Khazri – missed out for Rennes, meaning that Amadou may well be the man Everton were watching in Lille's 2-1 defeat.
