Rachid Ghezzal turns down Everton

Lyon’s attacking midfielder Rachid Ghezzal spoke to Everton representatives this afternoon and informed them that he would not be accepting their offer in its current state, according to RMC.

The player remains locked in contract extension negotiations with Lyon, with his current deal expiring at the end of this season.

Southampton and Claude Puel have also approached the player over a possible move and interested parties outside of France have yet to give up their pursuit of the player.

Ghezzal’s father wants him to accept the contract extension offer, on the table from Lyon, the player seems inclined to do so despite the fact that Everton’s proposition was financially more lucrative, whereas other members of the player’s entourage want him to take a move abroad.
