Everton are confident of wrapping up a deal for highly-rated Lyon winger Rachid Ghezzal this summer.
The 24-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and is refusing to pen an extension after holding talks with the French club.
That means the Algerian can leave on a free in the summer and he is not short of suitors as he reaches the final stages of his time in Lyon.
Everton are very interested in Ghezzal and, according to reports in France, they remain confident they will win the race to sign him.
The Toffees looked at bringing the winger in last summer and again in January, but Lyon were reluctant to sell.
Now Everton look as though they will bag Ghezzal for free if they can agree personal terms with him.
