Gabon international Denis Bouanga had a great start to his season at Saint Etienne after he was signed for €4m from Nimes in the summer of 2019.
Bouanga scored 12 goals and provided five assists from 35 appearances and it is not surprising to see him emerging on the radar of several clubs and one of those is Everton.
French publication Le10 Sport reveal that Bouanga could be worth £8m but his club Saint Etienne may want to fetch at least €15m for their valuable asset.
It would be a great financial boost for the club even though manager Claude Puel would ideally want to keep hold of his player who has made an impact in the squad.
Reports now claim that Everton and Real Betis could be set to battle for the 25-year-old's signature while Rennes have also been credited with having an interest in him but the claims prove unsubstantial.
