Many Everton fans have reacted to transfer links claiming a summer move could be made for Ibrahima Diallo, dubbed the ‘next N’Golo Kante‘.
The 21-year-old midfielder is gaining a big reputation in French football with Brest, gaining comparisons to Chelsea man Kante and attracting some of the biggest teams in Europe.
Brest signed Diallo from AS Monaco in 2018 on an initial loan deal before activating a permanent option last summer, and his performances during his time at the club have been at a high enough level to attract interest from elsewhere.
Now, according to French media outlet L’Equipe (via Get French Football News), Everton have made an enquiry into his potential availability this summer as boss Carlo Ancelotti looks to bring in a number of his own transfer targets.
Sevilla are also said to he keen on the France U20 midfielder, prompting a potential summer transfer battle between the Toffees and the La Liga outfit.
L’Equipe (via Get French Football News) also claim that Nice are also keeping an eye on Diallo’s future, whilst they suggest that Brest could be willing to cash in on the midfielder if a valuation of €15m (£13.1m) is met.
Reacting to @TheGwladysSt’s tweet on Twitter, fans gave the following responses after the account also featured Diallo playing against former player Idrissa Gueye.

I dont think he as ready as some in Ligue 1. Needs to be better on the ball Diallo, ball winner off the ball but on ball lets him down this season as he stepped up a level
