Everton and Manchester City have been linked with a move for Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot.
According to the Sun, the 25-year-old is a top target for City, but it is unlikely that the Frenchman will leave the Italian champions this summer.
The Toffees have also been linked with Rabiot for a while now, and Carlo Ancelotti worked with him during their time together at Paris Saint-Germain.
It remains to be seen whether the Premier League clubs can bring the Frenchman back to England at the end of this season.
Rabiot was a youth player for City back in 2008, but he left without making an appearance for the Premier League club.
The midfielder has done reasonably well since his move to Juventus and could prove to be a quality addition to Everton’s midfield.

Ancelotti has done well to improve his midfield options with the signings of Allan and Abdoulaye Doucoure at the start of the season, but the Toffees need more depth.
The likes of Jean-Philippe Gbamin and Fabian Delph have been plagued with injuries this season, and Everton could have used someone like Rabiot.
The 25-year-old has tremendous ability, and Ancelotti will be aware of his strengths and weaknesses, having worked with him in France.
The Italian manager will believe that he can unlock Rabiot’s potential if he moves to Goodison Park next season.
The Frenchman has all the tools to develop into a top-class player and could prove a solid long term investment for either Premier League club.
