Everton are reportedly ready to offer a fee in the region of €40 million to sign RB Leipzig striker Jean-Kevin Augustin.

According to reports in France, the ex-Paris Saint-Germain youngster is attracting interest from the Premier League following his good form in the Bundesliga.

Everton are going to be in the market for a striker in the new year and the report from France Football appears to have identified who their key target is.

Cenk Tosun appears to be on his way out of the club in January and the Toffees are hoping to get a replacement lined up quickly.

It remains to be seen if Leipzig will entertain the idea of a bid from Everton after the difficult negotiations between the two clubs during the previous transfer window.

The Bundesliga outfit spent the summer chasing Ademola Lookman’s signature and were very public in their pursuit, which the Toffees did not take too kindly too.
