Foot Mercato report this afternoon that Dango Ouattara, along with his fellow Lorient forward Terem Moffi, is the target of interest from the Premier League, notably from Everton, who have already put an offer on the table.
The Toffees have submitted a bid worth €20m for the Burkina Faso international, with talks now ongoing between the two clubs.
Mohamed Toubache-Ter had indicated yesterday that the Breton side had also seen an offer come in from Leicester for a similar fee excluding bonuses, the Foxes’ bid having been turned down by Les Merlus. A third bid worth €17m has come in from an unnamed club in Germany, which has also been rejected.
Ouattara has been a key part of Lorient’s surprise run at the European spots this season, his five goals and five assists making him a crucial part of Régis Le Bris’ side that at one point in autumn was even outright second-placed behind PSG.
