It has been reported by the French publication that Everton made an offer of €30 million (£27.46m) for the 26-year-old midfielder, but Premier League rivals Watford have turned it down.
The Hornets are claimed to want €40m (£36.61m) as transfer fee for the Frenchman, who is reported to be open to moving to the Merseyside outfit in the summer transfer window.
Good signing for Everton?
Doucoure is a very good midfielder who has done well in the Premier League for Watford, and one can understand why Everton are reportedly interested in the 26-year-old midfielder.
The former France Under-21 international will enhance the defensive midfield quality for the Toffees, who will be a better team with him in it.
According to WhoScored, Doucoure made 34 starts and one substitute appearance in the Premier League for Watford last season, scoring five goals and providing six assists in the process.
