According to reports from La Provence, via website Foot01, Everton have joined the race to sign French midfielder Morgan Sanson in the summer transfer window.
The 24-year-old joined Marseille in 2017 and has established himself as a key player for the club.
Last season he made 53 appearances in all competitions and scored 12 goals.
It was claimed earlier this month that Wolves have already opened talks over a deal.
Marseille could be forced to sell him this summer as they are trying to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations.
The French club value the midfielder at €30million (£26.8m) but they could be forced to reduce their asking price.
Everton have announced the signing of Andre Gomes from Barcelona earlier this week, and it is highly unlikely the Toffees would make a move for another midfielder.
