The Toffees may have taken a while to get going in the transfer window, but have now added three signings after securing Joao Virginia, Lucas Digne and Richarlison.
However, Marcel Brands and Marco Silva are still working on more signings though, and another midfielder to play alongside Idrissa Gueye has to be a priority for Everton in the next 48 hours.
Corriere Della Sera now report that Everton hold an interest in signing Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko, who endured a dismal first season at Stamford Bridge last term.
Bakayoko, 23, joined Chelsea from Monaco last summer, with BBC Sport reporting that the fee was a huge £40million after the Frenchman starred in three seasons with Monaco.
However, Bakayoko struggled to make an impact in the Chelsea midfield last term, with Blues fans left exasperated by his displays in a frustrating first season for the French international.
Chelsea may have signed Jorginho and be on the verge of landing Mateo Kovacic, but they aren't giving up on Bakayoko entirely, and plan to loan him out this month.
It's now believed that Everton want Bakayoko, but AC Milan are currently in the driving seat according to the report, with Borussia Dortmund also interested, leaving the Toffees with work to do if they want Bakayoko before Thursday's 5pm deadline.
