Everton are apparently interested in signing the Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele.
As per the Liverpool Echo, the Toffees have been monitoring the 21-year-old closely. The club’s chief scout Martyn Glover was sent to watch the France international recently.
Marco Silva could certainly use another central midfielder and Ndombele would be an exceptional addition.
The 21-year-old is a world class talent and he will have several clubs vying for his services if he is made available.
Ndombele would be a massive upgrade on the likes of Schneiderlin and Davies. He could be the ideal partner for Andre Gomes and Gueye in a midfield three.
The Frenchman is a box-to-box midfielder who is very capable at both ends of the pitch.
If Brands can pull it off, the transfer would be a masterstroke from Everton.
Everton fans took to Twitter to share their reactions on the reports. Here are some of the best tweets from earlier.
Announce all the players, do all the skillz, win all the shiny medals.

This lads destined for the top, certainly wouldn’t come cheap. To have him and Gomes as central options would be amazing.
Got to keep hold of Gomes as well as adding quality of his level. ??????

I’ve been following him since a while before he left Amiens (for my @FootballIndexUK investment). He’s different class. Worth watching him v City tmrw night, be like a job interview for him. Him & Houssem Aouar (also Lyon) are going places.

If I was Everton I would sign Thorgan Hazard and Ndombele

If Tanguy Ndombele is a serious target for Everton then without a shadow of a doubt our best appointment will have been Marcel Brands.

Ye, if he’s an improvement on them two can’t go wrong

Regardless of where he plays or even how many legs he has, it Brands wants him, I want him.

Great player, would love him or Aouar at Everton

Would be an unbelievable coup if we pulled this off, fits Silva’s system as well and would slot in nicely alongside Gomes
