Lyon & Everton in for Nzonzi?

Roma midfielder Steven Nzonzi has reportedly been targeted by Olympique Lyonnais and Everton after a disappointing spell on loan at Galatasaray.

The 31-year-old is currently in Turkey on loan from the Giallorossi but, after being dropped by the club for disciplinary reasons, he will in all probability return to the Italian capital this winter.

Tuttomercatoweb claims he is being followed by Lyon, who are looking to strengthen their troops ahead of a busy spring, including two legs against Juventus in the last 16 of the Champions League.

The website adds Rudi Garcia is an admirer of the French midfielder but also that he might be challenged next month by Premier League club Everton.

The Toffees allegedly tried to bring the player to Goodison Park over the summer, but Nzonzi preferred a move to Galatasaray so he could play in the Champions League.

Reports in Italy and England suggest Carlo Ancelotti is set to take over on the blue half of Merseyside, and TMW believes he could help attract Nzonzi to the club.
