The winger was a star of the French top-flight last season and that caught the attention of Bilic, but he is not alone as Everton are also keen and are flush with money following the John Stones sale to Manchester City.

Lyon have not given up hope of keeping him and are in negotiations over a new contract for the 24-year-old, but an agreement has not been reached as yet, and as he is about to enter the final year of his present deal, they do not want to see him walk away for nothing in a year’s time.

Despite the arrival of Andre Ayew from Swansea in a £20m deal on Tuesday, Bilic is keen to add more strength to his squad.
