There are reports Everton and West Bromwich Albion are battling for Parma winger Jonathan Biabiany.
The Frenchman has been a fixture in Serie A for some years and had also been linked with Inter, Roma, Milan and Juventus this summer.
According to Sky Sport Italia, West Brom have been in talks with Parma for several days and made an offer worth €5.5m (around £4.4m).
However, Tuttomercatoweb claim this is not enough to satisfy Parma demands and that Everton dived in with their own proposal.
Stoke City are also considered to be outsiders for Biabiany’s signature.
