Everton have joined the race for in-demand Lille star Nicolas Pepe.
The Ivory Coast international has attracted the interest of several clubs across Europe following a prolific season for the French side, with the winger scoring 22 goals as Lille finished runners-up in Ligue 1.
Any deal for the 24-year-old would likely represent a club-record fee for the Merseyside club, with Lille believed to be demanding around £58.5m for their prized asset.
Talks over a potential move to Goodison Park are likely to have to wait until the conclusion of the African Cup of Nations, where Pepe is in the Ivory Coast squad which will play Algeria in the quarter-finals on July 11.
Everton have also been linked with Barcelona winger, Malcom, who would represent a cheaper alternative.
